I'm a newbie in the Unix world so all this is a little confusing to me. I'm having trouble compiling some Fortran files under Cygwin on Windows XP.
Here's what I've done so far:
- Installed the e text editor.
- Installed Cygwin via the "automatic" option inside e text editor.
- I need to compile some Fortran files so via the "manage bundles" option I installed the Fortran bundle as well.
However, when I select "compile single file" I get an error saying
gfortran was missing, and then that I need to set the
TM_FORTRAN variable to the full path of my compiler.
I tried opening a Cygwin bash shell at the path mentioned (.../bin/gfortran), but the compiler was nowhere to be found.
Can someone tell me how to install this from the Cygwin command line? Where do I need to update the
TM_FORTRAN variable for the bundle to work?
Also, how do I change the bundle "compile" option to work with
ifort (my native compiler) on Windows? I've read the bundle file, but it is totally incomprehensible to me. Ifort is a Windows compiler, invoked simply by
ifort filename.f90, since it is on the Windows path.
I know this is a lot to ask of a first time user here, but I really would appreciate any time you can spare to help.
