Yes. Buy Lahey :-) .
Seriously, I switched from MS Fortran 5.0 to Lahey Personal Fortran 3.00
(the $99 list compiler), and the persistent floating-point stack underflow
problems I'd been having on my AT clone disappeared. Compilation speed was
increased about a factor of 3, and run speed was not reduced at all.
The project in question, incidentally, uses the MINPACK routines, so yes,
the program is heavily floating-point oriented. Lahey is more expensive,
but offers an education discount of 25% off list with purchase of 5 or
