Contributors to GNU Fortran
In addition to James Craig Burley, who wrote the front end, many
people have helped create and improve GNU Fortran.
* The packaging and compiler portions of GNU Fortran are based
largely on the GNU CC compiler. Contributors to GNU CC
(gcc)Contributors, for more information.
* The run-time library used by GNU Fortran is a repackaged version
of the `libf2c' library (combined from the `libF77' and `libI77'
libraries) provided as part of `f2c', available for free from
`netlib' sites on the Internet.
* Cygnus Support and The Free Software Foundation contributed
significant money and/or equipment to Craig's efforts.
* The following individuals served as alpha testers prior to `g77''s
public release. This work consisted of testing, researching,
sometimes debugging, and occasionally providing small amounts of
code and fixes for `g77', plus offering plenty of helpful advice

* Scott Snyder (<firstname.lastname@example.org>) provided the patch to add
rudimentary support for `INTEGER*1', `INTEGER*2', and `LOGICAL*1'.
This inspired Craig to add further support, even though the
resulting support would still be incomplete, because version 0.6
is still a ways off.
* David Ronis (<email@example.com>) inspired and
encouraged Craig to rewrite the documentation in texinfo format by
contributing a first pass at a translation of the old
* Toon Moene (<firstname.lastname@example.org>) performed some analysis
of generated code as part of an overall project to improve `g77'
code generation to at least be as good as `f2c' used in
conjunction with `gcc'. So far, this has resulted in the three,
somewhat experimental, options added by `g77' to the `gcc'
compiler and its back end.
(These, in turn, have made their way into the `egcs' version of
the compiler, and do not exist in `gcc' version 2.8 or versions of
`g77' based on that version of `gcc'.)
* John Carr (<email@example.com>) wrote the alias analysis improvements.
* Thanks to Mary Cortani and the staff at Craftwork Solutions
(<firstname.lastname@example.org>) for all of their support.
* Many other individuals have helped debug, test, and improve `g77'
over the past several years, and undoubtedly more people will be
doing so in the future. If you have done so, and would like to
see your name listed in the above list, please ask! The default
