Fortran 95 vs fortran 2003[edit]

Perhaps you could add there should be a small note that the newest fortran is called fortran 2003, but most compilers implement fortran 95. As far as I can see the present article only described fortran 95... Nice article though.. :)

Article is a copy&paste from Metcalf's f90 tutorial[edit]

Well, this page was created by Mike himself

There was no license provided on the linked page, so by default, there would be no right to re-use. Whereas Michael himself posted the content here, I would presume that the license he implicitly accepted via submission would carry.

As User:Duja mentioned, Mike created this article himself. Mike discussed this a bit in a comp.lang.fortran posting at the time (Sept 29th, 2006), saying that it was based on tutorials of his which had no copyright problems. So if anyone has any doubts, use Google to find the discussion in c.l.f. --Wws 14:42, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
