What is the f95 forum?
The forum is a nice medium between a chat room and a more personal message board. There are thousands of people from all over who have an interest in Fortran. You can communicate with others, read what others have written, or post your own thoughts on Fortran programming.
The community is an open group and there are many topics that require some degree of expertise, as well as some which are suitable for those new to Fortran. There are also topics covering more general programming matters as well as providing help for those who encounter any problems using various compilers or operating systems.
