I am in the process of bringing a suite of piping analysis programs written in Fortran over from a VMS system to Windows NT on Compaq technical computers. The programs are being compiled using Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6B. In addition to these, however, are a number of command procedures (*.com files on VMS) These are being replaced - for the most part - by *.bat files on NT.
Does anyone know a new group where this kind of construction is discussed? Some of what I have managed has been by trial and error. And some of that looks rather Mickey Mouse - as if there must be more elegant solutions. Thus far, my web searches have produced some useful information. But I suspect there is more out there.
