Visual Fortran environment prerequisites?

Visual Fortran environment prerequisites?

I'm shopping for a Windows Fortran compilers and need to know --

Is Compaq Visual Fortran free-standing in the sense that the user does NOT have to have another development environment with libraries (such as Microsoft Visual C++ or Visual Studio) installed in order to compile programs and create executables with VF?

Thanks,

Seth

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Correct - it is a complete product with nothing else to buy. If you don't already have Visual C++, etc., CVF installs the common pieces of the MS development environment needed for Fortran development. Of course, if you did want to also work with C/C++, you'd need to buy the C/C++ compiler separately (CVF doesn't include it.)
