Winteracter licences target specific platform/compiler combinations. Be sure to specify your
required target platform/compiler when ordering. Before doing so, please note the following:

Notes :

  • Windows : All Windows licences can be used on either Win32 (32-bit) or Windows x64 (64-bit) operating systems. When choosing a Windows licence, please select it according to the target program type, rather than the type of Windows operating system on which the software will be installed. 32-bit applications can be built on 64-bit Windows operating systems and vice versa. Licences are available which target 32-bit (only), 64-bit (only) or 32/64-bit Windows. The exact combinations of licence which we offer depend on the target compiler(s), as detailed on our Price List page. Please be sure sure to specify the target application type when ordering, not the type of Windows system you will be using for development.
  • Linux : The Linux versions target that platform generically, i.e. we do not target specific distributions. The visual tools and the installer require a minimum of GLIBC 2.4 (e.g. Fedora 5 or later). This requirement does not apply to the Winteracter library itself, however. As for Windows, licences are available which target 32-bit (only), 64-bit (only) or 32/64-bit Linux.
  • Lahey Fortran (Windows) : A choice of two Lahey compatible licences are offered on Windows, targeting either 32-bit (only) or 32/64-bit applications. The former can be used to create 32-bit programs with any of Lahey LF90/Elf90, Lahey Fujitsu Fortran or Lahey/GNU Fortran. The 32/64-bit licence supports the same compilers/targets, but adds the ability to create 64-bit applications with Lahey/GNU Fortran. All Windows Lahey Fortran versions from 4.0 through to 7.5 are supported, along with the Lahey/GNU Fortran “Shasta Edition”. (Note: Lahey LF90, Elf90 and Lahey/Fujitsu Fortran only target 32-bit applications.)
  • Visual Fortran : Digital/Compaq Visual Fortran and Intel Visual Fortran (IA32) are all supported in a single licence targeting 32-bit applications. A separate licence is also available for Intel Visual Fortran (only), targeting 64-bit applications. A dual target licence targeting 32/64-bit applications supports all of DVF, CVF and IVF. [Intel Fortran 12 is the compiler which ships as the main component of “Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 2011” (Windows) or “Intel Fortran Composer XE 2011” (Linux/Mac OS X). The version 13 and 14 compilers ship under similar names with “2013” designations. We refer to these compiler versions simply as “12”, “13” and “14” for the sake of brevity and consistency with earlier releases. Each Intel-compatible version of Winteracter supports multiple compiler versions from 10.0 onwards, regardless of the compiler product names which have been used by Intel for marketing purposes.]
  • Absoft : Absoft Pro Fortran 11.5 and 13.0 are marketed under the product names “Absoft Pro Fortran 2012” and “Absoft Pro Fortran 2013” respectively. Our Absoft compiler support refers to version “11.x” and “13.0” for the sake of brevity and consistency with earlier releases. Each Absoft-compatible version of Winteracter supports both 11.5 and 13.0. Most also support the earlier v11.0 compiler.
  • gfortran (Windows) : Support for GNU gfortran is included with all Windows Winteracter licences, in addition to the primary version for the selected commercial Fortran compiler. Windows Winteracter licences which target 32-bit applications, include 32-bit gfortran support. Similarly Windows licences which target 64-bit applications, also include 64-bit gfortran support. Dual 32/64-bit licences include both GNU versions. The Windows GNU versions are currently built with gcc/gfortran 4.8 (MinGW). Recommendations for where to obtain compatible versions are provided in the Winteracter documentation.
  • g95 (Linux) : Support for g95 is included with all Linux X X/Winteracter licences, in addition to the primary version for the selected commercial Fortran compiler. i.e. Each Lahey, Intel or Absoft targeted Linux X/Winteracter licence also includes g95 support. The currently required g95 compiler version on Linux is the “Stable v0.93 October 2012” realease. Dual Linux (32/64-bit) licences include both 32-bit and 64-bit g95-compatible libraries.
  • g95 (Mac OS X) : Support for g95 is included with all Mac OS X X/Winteracter licences, in addition to the primary version for the selected commercial Fortran compiler. i.e. Each Intel or Absoft targeted Mac X/Winteracter licence also includes g95 support. The currently required g95 compiler version on Mac OS X is the “Stable v0.92 July 2009” release. [It should be noted that the available g95 compiler binaries only appear to work on older versions of OS X, such as 10.5/10.6. This is a compiler compatibility issue, rather than a X/Winteracter limitation. If a compatible version of g95 functions correctly on a given OS X system, then the corresponding version of X/Winteracter is likely to be usable on that system too.]
  • Open64 (Linux) : Support for Open64 Fortran is included with all Linux X/Winteracter licences, in addition to the primary version for the selected commercial Fortran compiler. i.e. Each Lahey, Intel or Absoft targeted X/Winteracter licence on Linux also includes Open64 Fortran support. The currently required Open64 Fortran compiler version is v5.0. Dual Linux (32/64-bit) licences include both 32-bit and 64-bit Open64-compatible libraries.
  • Documentation : The documentation supplied with the Windows version is in HTML Help (CHM) format and therefore requires Internet Explorer 4 or later. This is standard on Windows 98/2000 onwards. Users of Windows 95/NT4 should ensure that a suitable Internet Explorer version is installed, to allow viewing of the documentation. On Linux and Mac OS X, documentation is supplied in HTML format which can be viewed in any modern web browser.
  • Windows 95 : Winteracter is no longer tested on Windows 95. Applications may still function on this platform, depending on your chosen compiler, but this is no longer officially supported.
