I have built up a rather large inventory of FORTRAN programs (many of which use QuickWin for graphics) and would like to use a better GUI front-end (such as Visual Basic) to launch these programs. It is my understanding that VB calls the FORTRAN programs only via DLLs, but that QuickWin is not compatible with DLLs.
(1) Is there any way to access QWIN routines (or another set of graphics routines that perform the same functions) and use VB as a GUI front-end?
(2) Is there another way to a GUI that does not use DLLs?
(3) Am I stuck?
