About time. Was wondering when LLVM would have a Fortran frontend.

Almost all the gold standard mathematical algorithms are written in FORTRAN. Prolific examples include BLAS and LAPACK which are both heavily used in industry (e.g. both of them power MATLAB). Of course, there's a re-implementations of these functions in other languages, but the ones on netlib are the gold standard.
