Fortran Installation

Cygwin list mailing list
I would like to install Fortran on newly installed Cygwin64 on my new LG
laptop. I did this 9+ years ago for Cygwin32 on my Dell T1600 which is
now fading. The process 9 years ago was long and hard over several weeks
with many fallbacks and redo's. I am competent in Fortran programming
but have only a minimum knowledge of Linux/Unix. Can anyone point me to
a guide (I searched but could not find any) to installing Fortran,
including which files to download, PATH, alias changes, etc. I know it
is a lot to ask, but ANY help would be appreciated.

Lou

$ cygcheck -p bin/gfortran
Found 8 matches for bin/gfortran
...
gcc-fortran-10.2.0-1 - gcc-fortran: GNU Compiler Collection (Fortran)
gcc-fortran-7.4.0-1 - gcc-fortran: GNU Compiler Collection (Fortran)

Install the gcc-fortran package.

Fortran compile was always there

You should start by installing the gcc-fortran package via setup.

To get a list of manually picked and installed packages in your current Cygwin
installation (excluding library packages except if they are devel or doc
packages) run the following command against your current installation:

$ awk '$3 && ($1 !~ /^lib/ || $1 ~ /-(devel|doc)/) {print $1}' \
        /etc/setup/installed.db | tee cygwin-packages-picked.txt

* transfer the file cygwin-packages-picked.txt to your new system e.g. your
Windows account Downloads folder on your new system,
* download https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe to e.g. your Windows account
Downloads folder on your new system,
* run setup-x86_64 on your new system with no selections to install a basic
Cygwin installation for you, then
* start a Cygwin shell in a terminal session, and
* rerun the Cygwin setup program with e.g.:

$ cygstart /proc/cygdrive/c/Users/.../Downloads/setup-x86_64 \
-P "`cat /proc/cygdrive/c/Users/.../Downloads/cygwin-packages-picked.txt`"

to start installing the manually picked packages you had on your old system
(dependencies will be automatically pulled in):
* you *MUST* exit your Cygwin shell and terminal, and ensure that you have no
other Cygwin processes still running, before allowing the Cygwin setup program
to proceed; and
* wait patiently for all the package downloads, installations, and post-install
scripts to run to completion, before trying to do anything more under Cygwin on
your new system.

Re: Fortran Installation

Cygwin list mailing list
wow; thanks for quick response. I tried running your first command but
got the message:

awk: fatal: cannot open file ' /etc/setup/installed.db' for reading (No
such file or directory)

The file seems to be there and I checked my input so I do not know what
when wrong. Any suggestions?

Lou

You seem to have picked up a quoted or non-breaking space.

Your original installation is anyway too old for that to work as
intended, so please just do a fresh install and select gcc-fortran and
any other utilities you might want to use.  If aynthing went missing
you'll know soon and can install those later.

Achim.

File name shown is ' /etc/setup/installed.db' - includes a leading space - do
not use any quotes or add spaces in file names - or just paste the second line
at the end of the first line, with an (unquoted) space between if required.

...and remove any \ continuation escape if you paste the lines together - that
may well have been your issue!

Re: Fortran Installation

Cygwin list mailing list
YES, that continuation escape was it. On to the next step.  BTW does the
fact that the old Cygwin is 32 bit, and the new Cygwin, that I have
already installed, is 64 complicate things?

Another question, if I may: does your procedure install both Fortran and
Dislin which are installed on the T1600? I do not see them in
cygwin-packages-picked.txt. Thanks again. Lou

The Cygwin Fortran package is gcc-fortran (gfortran/f95 symlink): you should see
this unless you have been using a proprietary closed source compiler.
It looks like Dislin is a proprietary closed source plotting package which you
will have to find, acquire, install, and configure separately, or migrate
settings from your old system.

There is a gcc4-fortran listed; so is that OK? And the old 32 bit vs new
64 bit is not a problem?

DISLIN is a free scientific plotting package(www.dislin.de). They have a
download for 64 bit Cygwin so I hope that will work.  Lou

That will need updated to gcc-fortran - it may have been using an ancient
package convention - you may have to check and update some package names if
never upgraded for many years.
Cygwin is a rolling release so if you upgrade using setup at least every year or
so, when thinsg are quiet, it will avoid you missing out when obsolete packages
are replaced.

It is not free/libre/open source, and only provides a proprietary no cost
licence for non-commercial binary download and use, so if you use it in any job,
you must pay to license use of it for a period of time, or choose a truly free
alternative.

The last update on that proprietary package was 18 months ago, so it may no
longer be actively developed or supported: you should check its mailing list for
recent activity; its status does not affect its licence.

Thank you for the information. Do you have any suggestions on which

Re: Fortran Installation

In reply to this post by Cygwin list mailing list
Another concern that just occurred to me is the installation of a BASIC
Cygwin installation. Does that mean that the files that I have
transferred from the old system and tuning that I have already done will
have to be redone? Can I do your cygstart step on my current
configuration? Again many thanks for your help. Lou

Cygwin customizations should normally be in your Cygwin /home/ directory under
~/.directories.../ and in ~/.dotrc... files.

Copying those over to the equivalent directory, reviewing, and modifying their
settings appropriately if required should keep your new system setup consistent
with your old system.

If you have made any system wide common customizations under /etc/, you can
check changes you may have made to those by running the command below on your
old system:

        $ diff -qr /etc/{defaults/etc/,} | tee ~/etc.log | less

which also saves the results summary, showing settings to be copied or compared
in the file ~/etc.log in your home directory ~/:

* lines in ~/etc.log saying
        "Only in /etc/...: file..."
indicate files that should be copied over from /etc/... on your old system to
/etc/... on your new system;

* lines in ~/etc.log saying
        "Files /etc/defaults/etc/file... and /etc/file... differ"
should be compared individually using commands like e.g.:

        $ diff /etc/{defaults/etc/,}file... | tee ~/file....diff | less

and a decision made whether to:
* keep the customizations by copying the file over from /etc/... on your old
system to /etc/... on your new system,
* update the customizations by changing the file after copying to your new
system, or
* restoring its settings to the original defaults by copying over the defaults
on your new system using a command like e.g.:

        $ cp -fpv /etc/{defaults/etc/,}file...

DISLIN is a library graphics subroutines and functions --

The (binary) distribution can be used freely.  Source code is obtained
for a small fee. Recent 32-bit and 64-bit cygwin binaries are available

Thank you one and all for your help. 10.2.0 gfortran now seems to be
working fine! Now on to installing DISLIN. Wish me luck.
