Append below some basic understanding of FORTRAN Programming language:

1.      Originally derived from the IBM Mathematical Formula Translating System.

2.      Primarily used in the scientific and engineering communities, who rely on this ancient high-level programming language to perform some of the most meticulous supercomputing tasks such as computational fluid dynamics, computational chemistry, quantum chromodynamics, solar system dynamic simulations, simulations of automobile crash dynamics, weather and climate modeling.

3.      Still used today to gauge the performance of new computer processors.

4.       FORTRAN (Fortran) has seen many versions, included within those came a name change (FORTRAN became Fortran with the 90 edition of the programming language.) that is still widely disputed today.
