**Mortran** (

**M**ore
F

**ortran**) is an extension of the

Fortran programming
language used for scientific computation. It introduces syntax
changes, including the use of semicolons to end statements, in
order to improve readability and flexibility. Mortran code is

macro-processed into
Fortran code for compilation.

Note that Mortran, like many preprocessors, does not make a
complete analysis of the Fortran source and, like many
preprocessors, may not always make its assumptions/requirements
explicit. Consider, for example, Mortran multiple assignment. From
the Mortran

*User Guide*:

/ I, A(I,K), J / = SQRT(X/2.0);

produces the following FORTRAN statements:

I = SQRT(X/2.0)
A(I,K) = SQRT(X/2.0)
J = SQRT(X/2.0)

In this example, the produced Fortran implements the multiple
assignment correctly only if X is not aliased to I or to A(I,K),
assuming the multiple assignment semantics are left to right.
