What one of the British C folk told me was that they cast envious
eyes on all the mathematical software available to Fortran users and
the intention behind this standard was to try to ensure that C became
more obviously competitive in this area. The same ends could be
achieved by interoperability of course and who is to say what
language the Fortran libraries are actually written in? But I agree
an International Standard is a strange way to go about it.
