Steve:  Am I eligible for this offer.  I am retired but still play around with Fortran code.  You may recall I was on the Fortran
Standards Committee from 1978 or so until something like 1998 when I could no longer get funding from the University of
New Mexico to participate in the Fortran committee.  Thanks for your consideration.

Some of you may remember that Intel used to offer a general noncommercial license for Intel?s compilers and tools on Linux, but that program was discontinued and replaced with one for students and open-source developers. We heard from many Fortran ?hobbyists? that they felt left out by this, and I lobbied to come up with a suitable offering.


For a limited time, I?ve been authorized to grant free, noncommercial licenses for Intel Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition for Fortran (includes Intel Fortran Compiler and Intel Math Kernel Library) to ?hobbyists?. This is available for Linux, OS X and Windows. (Windows requires that you get Microsoft Visual Studio separately, the free VS2015 Community Edition will do.) Support is through our user forums ? you?ll be eligible for new updates and versions for a year, the license itself is good for three years. More details will be in the license email.


This is a low-key program that won?t be promoted on the web site and I have been tasked with personally ?vetting? applicants. I?m starting with everyone on the WG5 list as I know there are many ?emeritus? members who might like to have a copy of Intel Fortran.  If this interests you, please write me directly (not to the WG5/J3 list.)   Later I?ll make an announcement to comp.lang.fortran.
