I have a similar problem, a Delphi7 GUI program, which makes
tomographic inversions and presents the data in graphic form to the
It was created back in 2002 and the developer put the advanced math
into 4 different DLL:s which were programmed in FORTRAN. The compiler
from Intel was plugged into MS Visual Studio 6 to create the Windows
DLL:s, which were subsequently called from within the main Delphi 7
Later the developer quit and we were stuck with the DLL:s.
Noone here has touched FORTRAN ever, but we do have the FORTRAN
sources in CVS.
I would very much want to convert them into DLL:s programmed in Pascal
instead so they can be maintained for new Windows versions (and use 64
bit for example).

Any ideas on how to do this?
