Setting up a working Fortran environment inside eclipse is more difficult than learning the language itself.

Fortran is a lie.

I ordered a couple of CDs lately, a few of them came today.
Though I only ordered one copy of the new Metroid Metal album (Varia Suite), they sent two (each mailed separately on separate days).
Which is nothing too outstanding, mistakes happen.
I also got the Blip Festival 2008 live album today. Well, half of it. It's a two disc album and the double case only had one CD in it.
It was the conjunction of these two events that made me give up and go crazy.

Go crazy?

I thought a prerequisite to living in the centre of the earth was that you were crazy already...

Well, you learn something new everyday.

In Fortran 90:

1/(10**1) = 0
This is understandable because 1 is an INTEGER, which means 1/10 is automatically casted to an INTEGER type before it's assigned to a REAL variable (not shown here.)

Solution:
1./(10**1) = .1
The decimal point after the constant 1 explicitly makes the result of the expression REAL.

However:
1./(10**2) = 9.99999978E-03
Obviously .00999999978 is an approximation of the expected result, .01.

Ah... http://www.math.hawaii.edu/lab/197/fortran/fort3.htm#base
That's annoying.

Hm, I thought Fortran was supposed to guarantee some number of digits of accuracy.
