Is Fortran Still Relevant? Comparing Fortran With Java and C++
In this paper, the authors presents a comparative study to evaluate and compare Fortran with the two most popular programming languages Java and C++. Fortran has gone through major and minor extensions in the years 2003 and 2008. How much have these extensions made Fortran comparable to Java and C++?, What are the differences and similarities, in supporting features like: templates, object constructors and destructors, abstract data types and dynamic binding? These are the main questions they are trying to answer in this paper.
