Fortran Compiler Comparisons


Which is the best Fortran compiler? We're often asked that question, but there is no single answer. All compilers have strong and weak points, and your choice should depend on finding the best match between your requirements and a compiler's strengths. To help customers make an informed decision, Polyhedron Solutions have compiled a series of charts comparing the main contenders. The charts cover the questions we are most frequently asked, but avoid subjective issues, such as stability, quality of support and documentation etc. Please contact us if you need further advice in coming to your decision.

The Version Numbers of the compilers used in these comparisons are listed in the Benchmark Tables.
