I agree with Nigel. Once you learn to program then learning a different language is trivial. So why not Fortran.

So far i consider c++ as the best for lower level. C# for .NET / objective language.
I created fish bot for game metin 2 with C#, still not banned yet hehe...
But i must always find manually adress in ram (when fish was detected). They have some dynamic offsets. Pointers changed all time...
Python for neural network.
But why someone would like to teach fortran.
BTW my first language was pascal.
It was nice book to read through.

Thats useful. Thanks
Now it makes sense, why they teach fortran. Its IT+Physics. Field of study is called
computer modeling in science and technology

Why not. I had to write a FORTRAN program to analyze a "water plant". C isn't quite the right language for it.
MATLAB might even be better.

I see no reason to not use FORTRAN. I would pick FORTRAN over C for that application.
