I have a sample Fortran 77 file, very simple. I then say:
$ gfortran fortran_1.f
and nothing happens. I mean it takes about 5 second for the command prompt to reappear again. I interpret it as the fact that the executable is being created but no message appears. Checking the directory where the Fortran file fortran_1.f is located I can see the file: a.out. Is it an exec file? If so, how to run it? When I say
$ a.out I get an error message.
When I print this file with cat a.out I can see that inside I most likely have object code.
Please, help to understand it all.
Thanks, - Alex
