Absoft Fortran 77 for Linux

This is the compiler I regularly use. Their F77 product has a full complement of VAX extensions, and produces the fastest (single-processor) executables under Linux of any Fortran compiler I've tested. A source-level debugger is included which is very nice and has both Motif and text-window interfaces. The new F77 compiler is even nicer than the old one. I've been able to use it to link with G77-compiled libraries which helps alot.

Absoft has a native F90 product as well. I have used it fairly often and it seems stable although I have not stress-tested it nearly as much as I have their F77 product.
