Fortran (atau FORTRAN) adalah sebuah bahasa pemrograman. Pertama kali dikembangkan pada tahun 1950 dan digunakan dalam bidang sains selama 50 tahun kemudian. Pertama kali bernama FORTRAN yang merupakan singkatan dari Formula Translator/Translation, tetapi penggunaan huruf besar kemudian ditiadakan sejak versi Fortran 90. Pertama kali dikembangkan merupakan bahasa pemrograman prosedural, akan tetapi versi-versi terbaru dari Fortran kemudian dikembangkan dengan memasukkan kemampuan object-oriented programming.

FORTRAN merupakan salah satu bahasa pemrograman yang cukup tua, lahir pada tahun 1957 dari sebuah tim yang dipimpin oleh John W. Backus. FORTRAN yang merupakan singkatan dari Formula Translation dibuat untuk memenuhi kebutuhan dalam hal numerik. Banyak fungsi matematika yang telah didefinisikan sehingga tidak perlu lagi dilakukan pendefinisian secara manual di program.

          Dikembangkan pada 1954 hingga 1956 oleh John Backus dan staff IBM yang lain. FORTRAN (FORmula TRANslator) merupakan bahasa level tinggi yang pertama. FORTRAN pada mulanya didesain untuk mengekspresikan humus matemática dan maíz merupakan bahasa matemática yang paling banyak digunakan. Bahasa ini juga berguna untuk aplikasi bisnis yang kompleks, seperti perkiraan (forecasting) dan pemodelan. Namur karena tidak mampu manangani operasi input/output atau pemrosesan file dalam volume besar, maka bahasa FORTRAN tidak digunakan untuk masalah bisnis yang biasa.
          Saat ini perkembangan bahasa pemrograman FORTRAN cukup pesat, dengan lahirnya Fortran 77 dan Fortran 90 telah membuat bahasa ini menjadi leader dalam hal pemrograman numerik. Tidak heran banyak programmer dalam bidang komputasi masih tetap menggunakan bahasa pemrograman Fortran untuk menyelesaikan masalah numerik.
Bahasa Pemrograman FORTRAN memiliki kelebihan dan kekekurangan  :
Kelebijan Bahasa Pemrograman FORTRAN
  • FORTRAN bisa menangani ekspresi matemática dan logika yang kompleks. Pernyataanya cukup pendek dan sederhana.
  • Program FORTRAN yang dikembangkan pada satu tipe komputer bisa dengan mudah dimodifikasi agar bisa bekerja pada tipe yang lain.
 Kekurangan Bahasa Pemrograman FORTRAN
  • FORTRAN tidak menangani operasi input dan output pada peralatan penyimpanan seefisien bahasa lain yang levelnya lebih tinggi
  • Memiliki keterbatasan untuk mengekspresikan dan memproses data nonnumerik
  • Tidak bisa dibaca atau dipahami semudah bahasa level tinggi yang
           Terdapat beberapa hal yang menjadikan bahasa pemrograman Fortran lebih unggul dibandingkan dengan bahasa pemrograman lain yaitu,
  1. proses eksekusi / kompilasi program yang cukup cepat.
  2. metode penulisan program sangat fleksibel, setiap bagian blok program dapat ditulis secara tidak berurutan.
  3. mendukung teknik kompilasi secara menyeluruh (all compilation), maksudnya misalkan kita memiliki 5 buah file Fortran yang saling berhubungan maka semua file tersebut dapat langsung dikompilasi semua dalam satu perintah dengan bantuan makefile yang kita buat, bagian ini akan dijelaskan pada bab yang akan datang.
  4. memilki kompilator (compiler) yang cukup banyak berkembang.
         Masih banyak keunggulan yang dimiliki oleh bahasa pemrograman ini yang mungkin dapat dirasakan ketika kita membuat program. Pada bab selanjutnya akan dibahas mengenai cara kompilasi dan beberapa contoh program dalam bahasa Fortran dan juga bahasa C.

    This is the penalize Fortran Secarik Kertasâ„¢ diary for anyone who wants to move out out some this content. You respond so such its most wearing to debate with you (not that I real would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new prolong on a topic thats been cursive almost for years. Discriminating choke, only outstanding!

  16. What could be more amazing than the usual rather published post with an intriguing topic that is not only well-timed but also not too many individuals who want to talk about it? It could be. It is your internet site that mixes all this! Great job!

  17. There aren’t many sites that will draw me in many than a matter of minutes, due to the fact a great deal sufficient for me to obtain the information that interests me. However when Someone said these pages unless of course every one of the content articles that happen to be contained below. A thing wonderful.

  18. andrea kropp berkata:

    I was basically wanting to know if you ever considered adjusting the design of your web site? Its well written; I really like what you have got to state. But maybe you could create a little more in the way of written content so people can connect to it better. Youve got a great deal of wording for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you can space it out better?

    I’ve learned quite a few important things via your post. I would also like to mention that there may be a situation in which you will apply for a loan and never need a cosigner such as a U.S. Student Aid Loan. But when you are getting credit through a regular loan provider then you need to be willing to have a cosigner ready to enable you to. The lenders are going to base their decision using a few variables but the greatest will be your credit ratings. There are some lenders that will also look at your job history and choose based on that but in almost all cases it will depend on your credit score.
