Welcome to Windows programming! If you have never written an application for Windows before and youve heard it is complicated, RealWin will eliminate your fears. With RealWin you can transform your DOS-hosted Fortran program into a great Windows application. When youre done, your whole user interface is coded in Fortran.
RealWin is a custom library designed in a partnership with some pretty demanding clients. The powerful features that our custom clients use are available at a "shrinkwrap" price. You can order your own special features or just use the existing ones.
RealWin lets a Fortran programmer create full-featured applications for Microsoft 32-bit Windows platforms. Most of the details of handling Windows messages, menus, dialog boxes, etc., are done automatically within RealWin routines. With RealWin doing the hard work, you only have to consider the high-level aspects of your user interface. All of RealWins functions, subroutines, parameter definitions and interfaces are in a Fortran 90 module. RealWin procedures typically have many optional arguments which means you can use default values to get your program written quickly and then go back later and customize. (See sample screen)
If you want to create applications for Microsoft Windows with Fortran, then you should be using RealWin. Just call RealWins powerful Fortran interface routines to get access to the Windows API. Dont get bogged down with mixed-language programming. Dont settle for some wimpy emulation of Windows that wont let your application evolve. RealWin is the way to get from Fortran to Windows.

Win is the Answer
Others are Saying
"RealWin has greatly
simplified the task of upgrading my Rail Traffic
Controller program to be a Windows based application. I
spend the majority of my time programming the crux of the
application rather than worrying about the cosmetic
Windows interface details. RealWin completely hides the
often nasty and arcane details of Windows programming
through a series of easy to understand routines. RealWin
contains access to all the Win32 calls necessary for a
professional interface. After studying a few examples, I
was up and running in Windows in a matter of hours.
"I'd like to extend a
heart-felt 'THANK YOU' for developing RealWIN. It's
really made API/GUI coding tasks far more convenient and
much easier!!! It's also tied ALOT of loose ends when it
comes to API confusion."
"My experience with beta
version is more than positive. The basic idea is very
good. It is easy to include RealWin in existing
application with small changes in program structure. The
sample cases are more than enough to start the usage of
the library. Until now I have not experienced any problem
with RealWin usage."
"Keep up the good work; I
think RealWin is a terrific product."
RealWin takes advantage of key features of Fortran 90 so that your code is easy to read and easy to enhance. You dont have to change any of your FORTRAN 77 code in order to use RealWin. Any Fortran 90 code you must write can be cloned and modified from the RealWin example programs.
