Errata list for "Modern Fortran Explained"

Since the latest edition of “Modern Fortran Explained” was published over two years ago, a number of errors and other infelicities have come to light. Further, a number of interpretations of the standard by the standards committees require modifications to the book.

These changes will be incorporated progressively into future printings but, in the meanwhile, the most important ones have been gathered into an errata file, as promised at the bottom of p. vii of the book:

ftp://ftp.numerical.rl.ac.uk/pub/MRandC/edits.pdf

We hope this is of some use.

Regards,

Mike Metcalf

P.S. For some obscure reason, the file seems to be inaccessible to the Microsoft Edge browser.

It’s also inaccessible with Firefox. Most browsers are now dropping the ftp protocol, considered insecure (and their code is old).

I tried to use wget, curl and ftp but did not succeed… (proxy problem)

I was able to download it using FileZilla but with unsecure protocol.

Many thanks for all the feedback. We will investigate a more modern approach and post it here.
