It is not the intent of this thesis to present the rules of FORTRAN; it is assumed that the reader is generally familiar with the principles of FORTRAN programming. Rather, this is an attempt to describe FORTRAN in relation to the compiler program it actually is -- a machine language program which translates FORTRAN statements to machine language instructions, the latter capable of being executed by the same computer. The FORTRAN statements will be interpreted in terms of the compiler program which performs the translation, and algorithms for these statements will be described.
