This section describes known problems that affect users of GNU Fortran. Most of these are not GNU Fortran bugs per se--if they were, we would fix them. But the result for a user might be like the result of a bug.
Some of these problems are due to bugs in other software, some are missing features that are too much work to add, and some are places where people's opinions differ as to what is best.
To find out about major bugs discovered in the current release and possible workarounds for them, see ftp://alpha.gnu.org/g77.plan.
(Note that some of this portion of the manual is lifted
directly from the
gcc manual, with minor modifications
to tailor it to users of
Anytime a bug seems to have more to do with the
Known Causes of Trouble with GCC.)
