The language of science Dr Bob. It is still a highly optimized, possibly THE most highly optimized, language out there and the scientists have been using it forever. They don't often hire programmers for that either.

Much of the Modtran libraries and much similar code, is sourced in FORTRAN. It is also often used underneath Mech. Engineering finite element programs.

I use it rarely but learned it first.

"A good programmer can write FORTRAN in any language" :-)
