**Fortran** (**FORTRAN**, derived from *Formula Translation*^{[2]}) is a general-purpose,

Originally developed by ^{[3]} in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications, FORTRAN came to dominate this area of programming early on and has been in continuous use for over half a century in computationally intensive areas such as ^{[4]} and is used for programs that benchmark and rank the world's ^{[5]}

Fortran encompasses a lineage of versions, each of which evolved to add extensions to the language while usually retaining compatibility with prior versions. Successive versions have added support for

Fortran's design was the basis for many other programming languages. Among the better known is ^{[6]} and other changes to more easily work in an interactive environment.^{[7]}

The names of earlier versions of the language through FORTRAN 77 were conventionally spelled in all-capitals (FORTRAN 77 was the last version in which the use of lowercase letters in keywords was strictly non-standard). The capitalization has been dropped in referring to newer versions beginning with Fortran 90. The official language
