Abstract

Toolpack is an integrated set of software tools providing Fortran users with a flexible programming environment. The concept of flexibility comes from the UNIX philosophy, being the package originally developed on VAX machines. As exceptions to its portable design, some UNIX-like features have been embedded into the software. Therefore, transporting the package in MVS has required the implementation of an interface to be shared between TSO and a running tool. The solution has been found in a recursive access to TSO facilities rather than by using ad-hoc system modifications. The preliminary use experience has shown a wide area of applications in which users may take profit of an automated and systematic way of operating on Fortran 77 sources, although performance may be a critical point. As an example, an alternative way of switching between single and double precision versions of a same Fortran 77 program will be presented.
