### How to use this tool?

This free online converter lets you convert code from Matlab to Fortran in a click of a button. To use this converter, take the following steps -

- Type or paste your Matlab code in the input box.
- Click the convert button.
- The resulting Fortran code from the conversion will be displayed in the output box.

### Examples

The following are examples of code conversion from Matlab to Fortran using this converter. Note that you may not always get the same code since it is generated by an AI language model which is not 100% deterministic and gets updated from time to time.

Example 1 - Is String Palindrome

Program that checks if a string is a palindrome or not.

Matlab

Fortran

Example 2 - Even or Odd

A well commented function to check if a number if odd or even.

Matlab

Fortran

### Key differences between Matlab and Fortran

Characteristic | Matlab | Fortran |
---|---|---|

Syntax | Matlab uses a high-level syntax that is similar to mathematical notation, making it easy to read and write. | Fortran uses a low-level syntax that is more difficult to read and write than Matlab. |

Paradigm | Matlab is a high-level programming language that supports procedural, functional, and object-oriented programming paradigms. | Fortran is a low-level programming language that supports procedural programming paradigm. |

Typing | Matlab is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime. | Fortran is statically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at compile time. |

Performance | Matlab is slower than Fortran for numerical computations, but faster for matrix operations. | Fortran is faster than Matlab for numerical computations. |

Libraries and frameworks | Matlab has a large number of built-in libraries and toolboxes for numerical computation, data analysis, and visualization. | Fortran has fewer libraries and frameworks than Matlab, but it has libraries for scientific computing and engineering. |

Community and support | Matlab has a large community of users and developers, and it is well-supported by MathWorks. | Fortran has a smaller community of users and developers than Matlab, but it is still well-supported by vendors and open-source communities. |

Learning curve | Matlab has a relatively low learning curve, especially for users with a background in mathematics or engineering. | Fortran has a steep learning curve, especially for users who are new to programming or have no background in mathematics or engineering. |
