The easiest way to compile Fortran code in Windows is trough Cygwin, which
provides a Unix-like environment for Windows. The installer also works as a
package manager, providing an extensive collection of software from the Unix
ecosystem. For convenience, we provide a zip archive containing the Cywin
installer and a local repository with all the additional software needed for
Steps for installing Cygwin:
- Unizip the archive
- Execute "setup-x86_64.exe". If administrator rights are missing, execute it
from the command line as "setup-x86.exe --no-admin".
- In the setup choose "Install from local directory".
- Choose root directory, where cygwin will be installed. In this directory you
will also find the home directory of the Unix environment.
- Choose the diretory "cygwin_ALF" as local package Directory.
- At the "Select Packages" screen, in "Categories" view, at the line marked
"All", click on the word "default" so that it changes to "install".
- Finish installation
- To add, remove or update installed packages, rerun the installer setup and
chose "Install from Internet".
