Downloadable Disk Images - Programs on the Fortran-80 disk

Fortran was a popular language on large computer systems in the 1960s and '70s. In fact my very first programming experience was writing programs using punchcards in 1978 in college. Its precision made it particularly popular in scientific and engineering circles.

Name (and filename) Description What to type at the dos prompt
Fortran 80 v 3.4 (f80/cmd)
Auxiliary files include...
Edit/cmd, Forlib/rel, L80/cmd and test/cmd, test/lst, test/dat and test/for
This is the best known implementation of Fortran for the TRS-80 world. Written by Microsoft and distributed by Tandy (1979)
Note: the manual is for version 3.2
Macro-80 Assembler v 3.4 (m80/cmd)
Also includes cref80/cmd
A related program by Microsoft. This is essentially an assembler, but it seems to share much of the same code as Fortran-80, and is mentioned in the Fortran manual several times.
Hence I include it here. (1979)
