Cleanscape FortranLint Source Code Analyzer  
Cleanscape FortranLint is a Fortran static source code analysis tool that reduces your organizational exposure to risks from latent software problems by automatically identifying problems at their source -- in the Fortran code prior to compiling or executing programs. Cleanscape FortranLint simplifies the debugging and maintenance of Fortran code by rigorously examining source files, almost instantly generating comprehensive reports on hundreds of problems that are readily accepted by a typical compiler.
ftnchek is a static analyzer for Fortran 77 programs. It is designed to detect certain errors in a Fortran program that a compiler usually does not. ftnchek is not primarily intended to detect syntax errors. Its purpose is to assist the user in finding semantic errors. Semantic errors are legal in the Fortran language but are wasteful or may cause incorrect operation. For example, variables which are never used may indicate some omission in the program; uninitialized variables contain garbage which may cause incorrect results to be calculated; and variables which are not declared may not have the intended type. ftnchek is intended to assist users in the debugging of their Fortran program. It is not intended to catch all syntax errors. This is the function of the compiler. Prior to using ftnchek, the user should verify that the program compiles correctly.
