Note that, of these standards, GNU Fortran currently only supports the base Fortran 95 standard (not parts 2 or 3) as amended in the two corrigenda, the Fortran 95 TR 15581 extension, and some portions of the Fortran 2003 standard. The other documents are linked here for reference, but should not be taken as documentation of GNU Fortran features.

The official standards can be bought from the [[http://www.iso.org/iso/en/CombinedQueryResult.CombinedQueryResult?queryString=FortranInternational Organization for Standardization (ISO)]] or from your national standardization organization. In particular, [[http://webstore.ansi.org/FindStandards.aspx?SearchString=FortranANSI's webshop]] often sells the standard for much less than ISO. Documents of the format N''nnnn'' (e.g. N1830) are available from on the [[ftp://ftp.nag.co.uk/sc22wg5/FTP server of WG5]], documents of the form ''yynnnn'' (e.g. 04007) or with an additional r''n'' suffix indicating the revision (e.g. 97007r2) are available from [[http://j3fortran.org/doc/]] in the "year" subdirectory. Note that, of these standards, GNU Fortran currently only supports the base Fortran 95 standard (not parts 2 or 3) as amended in the two corrigenda, the Fortran 95 TR 15581 extension, the Fortran 77 standard with the MILSTD 1753 extensions, and some portions of the Fortran 2003 and 2008 standard; these standards have been highlighted in bold.

Fortran Standards Documents
Draft (unofficial) versions of the various recent Fortran standards and corrigenda are available from the J3 website, the WG5 website, and/or the WG5 file server, in various formats. In addition, some older Fortran standards are available from www.fortran.com. The official standards can be bought from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or from your national standardization organization. In particular, ANSI's webshop often sells the standard for much less than ISO.
Documents of the format Nnnnn (e.g. N1830) are available from on the FTP server of WG5, documents of the form yynnnn (e.g. 04007) or with an additional rn suffix indicating the revision (e.g. 97007r2) are available from http://j3fortran.org/doc/ in the "year" subdirectory.
Note that, of these standards, GNU Fortran currently only supports the base Fortran 95 standard (not parts 2 or 3) as amended in the two corrigenda, the Fortran 95 TR 15581 extension, the Fortran 77 standard with the MILSTD 1753 extensions, and some portions of the Fortran 2003 and 2008 standard; these standards have been highlighted in bold. The other documents are linked here for reference, but should not be taken as documentation of GNU Fortran features.

POSIX
The IEEE standard covering Fortran 77 POSIX bindings is available online, though unfortunately only from locations with appropriate subscriptions to the IEEE server (e.g., many university networks). For those who do have such access, the link is:

Note IEEE 1003.91992 was withdrawn 6 February 2003. Some vendors provide their own way to access POSIX functions and make those available as module; for instance the IFPORT module of Intel or the f90_* modules of NAG. There also some compilerindependent efforts to make them accessible, e.g. Posix90 (doc), flibs' platform/files and directories, fortranposix.

IEEE 754
The IEEE Standard for Binary FloatingPoint Arithmetic (IEEE 754) is the most widelyused standard for floatingpoint computation. Unfortunately, they are not freely available.
IEEE 7541985 Standard for Binary FloatingPoint Arithmetic
IEEE 8541987 Standard for RadixIndependent FloatingPoint Arithmetic
Latest publicly available draft of IEEE 7542008 (4 October 2006)
The IEEE 7542008 standard is currently being adopted as ISO/IEC/IEEE 60559:2011
ISO/IEC 9899 Programming languages  C
The C standard is relevant for two parts: (a) the interoperability features of Fortran 2003/2008/interop TR and (b) for the C Preprocessor (CPP; "Preprocessing directives"), which gfortran supports as vendor extension.
