21.13 Fortran Mode

Fortran mode provides special motion commands for Fortran statements and subprograms, and indentation commands that understand Fortran conventions of nesting, line numbers, and continuation statements.

Special commands for comments are provided because Fortran comments are unlike those of other languages.

Built-in abbrevs optionally save typing when you insert Fortran keywords.

Use M-x fortran-mode to switch to this major mode. Doing so calls the value of fortran-mode-hook as a function of no arguments if that variable has a non-nil value.

Fortran mode was contributed by Michael Prange.
