Contributors to GNU Fortran
In addition to James Craig Burley, who wrote the front end,
many people have helped create and improve GNU Fortran.
- The packaging and compiler portions of GNU Fortran are based largely
on the GCC compiler.
See Contributors to GCC,
for more information.
- The run-time library used by GNU Fortran is a repackaged version
libf2c library (combined from the
libI77 libraries) provided as part of f2c, available for
netlib sites on the Internet.
- Cygnus Support and The Free Software Foundation contributed
significant money and/or equipment to Craig's efforts.
- The following individuals served as alpha testers prior to g77's
public release. This work consisted of testing, researching, sometimes
debugging, and occasionally providing small amounts of code and fixes
for g77, plus offering plenty of helpful advice to Craig:
- Jonathan Corbet
- Dr. Mark Fernyhough
- Takafumi Hayashi (The University of Aizu)—firstname.lastname@example.org
- Kate Hedstrom
- Michel Kern (INRIA and Rice University)—Michel.Kern@inria.fr
- Dr. A. O. V. Le Blanc
- Dave Love
- Rick Lutowski
- Toon Moene
- Rick Niles
- Derk Reefman
- Wayne K. Schroll
- Bill Thorson
- Pedro A. M. Vazquez
- Ian Watson
- Dave Love (email@example.com)
wrote the libU77 part of the run-time library.
- Scott Snyder (firstname.lastname@example.org)
provided the patch to add rudimentary support
This inspired Craig to add further support,
even though the resulting support
would still be incomplete.
This support is believed to be completed at version 3.4
of gcc by Roger Sayle (email@example.com).
- David Ronis (firstname.lastname@example.org) inspired
and encouraged Craig to rewrite the documentation in texinfo
format by contributing a first pass at a translation of the
old g77-0.5.16/f/DOC file.
- Toon Moene (email@example.com) performed
some analysis of generated code as part of an overall project
to improve g77 code generation to at least be as good
as f2c used in conjunction with gcc.
So far, this has resulted in the three, somewhat
experimental, options added by g77 to the gcc
compiler and its back end.
(These, in turn, had made their way into the
version of the compiler, and do not exist in gcc
version 2.8 or versions of g77 based on that version
- John Carr (firstname.lastname@example.org) wrote the alias analysis improvements.
- Thanks to Mary Cortani and the staff at Craftwork Solutions
(email@example.com) for all of their support.
- Many other individuals have helped debug, test, and improve g77
over the past several years, and undoubtedly more people
will be doing so in the future.
