The Fortran 95 Handbook, a comprehensive reference work for the
Fortran programmer and implementor, contains a complete description of
the Fortran 95 programming language. The chapters follow the same
sequence of topics as the Fortran 95 standard, but contain a more
thorough and informal explanation of the language9s features and many
more examples. Appendices describe all the intrinsic features, the
deprecated features, and the complete syntax of the language. In
addition to an unusually thorough topical index, there is an index of
examples. Major new features added in Fortran 95 are the FORALL
statement and construct, pure and elemental procedures, and structure
and pointer default initialization.
