Hi. Why is that a part of the task? --Paddy3118 (talk) 15:24, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

And why have I been the only person to implement it so far (as far as I can tell)? –Donal Fellows (talk) 13:52, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
You are right, there is no purpose for it and it has been removed. --Vilipetek (talk) 22:14, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Vague task description

The task description is vague. It just says "change some values". What values? I think it should be specified more clearly so that the different implementations would be comparable. Or, at least, there should be description on each implementation of what that implementation does. --PauliKL (talk) 12:11, 7 October 2013 (UTC)


I'll leave the section on old Fortran, but as seems to be customary for the author, this is a loooong section completely overlooking modern Fortran features. He seems not to be aware that the standard has seen some revisions since Fortran 66. Besides, he is also completely overlooking the fact that to read CSV without messing up with edit descriptors, one would obviously read a line and parse the CSV. Here I'm doing this minimally, since I don't want the program to become too long. But the general idea is: with Fortran 2003, all of this is easy stuff. Contrary to what Dinosaur wrote. Again. Sigh.
