Microsoft Developer Studio Fortran Powerstation Free Download
The PowerStation (pronounced PowerPoint) is an integrated development environment (IDE) for both the C and Fortran programming languages. It was originally part of the 1985 1985 version of Microsoft’s MS-DOS-compatible Microsoft BASIC Compiler and Debugger product. In 1987, MS-DOS-compatible Microsoft BASIC Compiler and Debugger was released as Microsoft BASIC Compiler 7 (MB 7), and the Microsoft BASIC Compiler and Debugger and PowerStation were bundled with the rest of the product. From 1988 through 1991, the PowerStation was bundled with the MS-DOS-compatible Microsoft BASIC Compiler 8 (MB 8) and Microsoft BASIC Compiler and Debugger 1989 (MB 89). MB 8 and MB 89, along with many other components, were bundled with the 1990 release of MS-DOS-compatible Microsoft BASIC Compiler 9 (MB 9).
Even though the compiler is available for free, you are not allowed to distribute the compiler binaries without the Intel Hardware Compatibility Kit. You can however redistribute the parts of the compiler available for free. These parts include the architecture independent Fortran 90, 90+, and 95/05/11 parts of the compiler, the Fortran source code, the hardware development kit (H.D.K.) with especially designed F0X , and the Fortran compiler git repository .
Furthermore, I wish to add that I have been using PGI’s Visual Fortran compiler for years and find it excellent. My company has bought both Visual Fortran 8 and Visual Fortran 11, and now Visual Fortran 13.9 for our very large parallel simulations. I recommend it to anyone who is looking to develop parallel applications in Fortran. Unlike the old FORTRAN 90 compilers on previous versions of MSDNAA and MSDNAA Express, PGI’s compiler is free of charge for everybody. The good thing about Visual Studio for large parallel simulations is that the package supports unordered and ordered Parallelism as well, which is not the case for the old compilers. The support of Parallelism and OpenMP together make it easier for developers to optimize their programs for fast computation in a larger project. Therefore, I recommend using PGI’s compiler if you would like to develop massively parallel applications in Fortran.
if you want to continue using the intel c/c++ compilers, you can download the developer edition, which includes the intel(r) c/c++ compiler 2019 update, and the fortran compiler. it does not include any other components (e.g., libraries, headers, debuggers, etc.).
hello, i am a newbie in c++ and my compiler is dev-c++ 5.2. i am using windows 7 32-bit. i want to use the visual studio 2017 (x86) 32-bit compiler for development. i know there is a free compiler that is the intel for.. can you help me please? thanks.regards.
in both cases, you should be aware that intel has released its new parallela studio free of charge. it includes the intel hpc toolkit, intel mkl, and all of the supporting libraries. your project and compilation files are located in a user-friendly folder structure in your home directory. you can work in the ide, or you can use the command line tools for compiling and parallel debugging. (intel has even released a command line tool to launch the gui.)
the fortran powerstation product offered a way to do both the compile and debug a fortran program on the alpha. in contrast, the alpha compiler and debug support were basically implemented as a stand-alone product. the powerstation product was also portable to the pdp-11 and to the ibm rs/6000 systems, including both rs/6000 hardware and rs/6000 emulation in the rsx-11m and vaxstation 5100.
my biggest problem with all the free visual studio compilers i’ve tried is that they don’t have gfortran integrated into them. but this time it looks like it has finally happened, so i will give it a shot.
