hello again,

i have been gathering a pretty good list of software that compiles and
runs under Linux.  many of the structure programs are in FORTRAN.  i
have a couple of questions about this...

1) is FORTRAN still better than C for this sort of thing or is it just
   a result of many xtallographers being familiar with FORTRAN?

2) more importantly, i would really like to hear success stories from
   anyone who has compiled FORTRAN code under Linux, especially the
   type of software mentioned in the subject.  if you know it, please
   tell me what you had to do to get it to work and what your system
   configuration is.

i will be posting a list of software to this newsgroup as well as
making it nifty html in the coming week.

thanks,
