I have a fortran Application which I would like people using the web
to be able to submit data and send it to the Program which uses the
input and then sends the output from the program back to the web.
Similar to unix shell would be
program <input >output      where input is from a form and output goes back to the web.
HOW? What script do I use to set up the interface? Is there a script already in use that can be used?

The web server does all this for you if you have your program setup as a cgi program.  It will send the data from the web form on the standard input and you send out the html data on the output.  You need to be able to read the data from the web server, its in a special format.  As for output you can output HTML or text or a picture.

I have a Frotran program which requires to be put on the web.
I have no access to the source of this program. I would like to
know if there is script available that will handle the form input
and send it to the Fortran program and inturn send the results
back to the web?
I hope this helps more.

It is strongly dependent on which input/output format your Fortran program needs/generates.

Technically, it's just a matter of building a CGI program which:

- gets infos from a form;
- reformats infos as needed by the Fortran prog;
- opens a pipe to that prog;
- writes infos to the pipe, reads back the answer;
- formats answer for web publishing;
- writes answer to the web (to stdout).

For further help, you should show (a sample of):

- what comes from the form;
- what the Fortran prog waits for;
- what the F. prog answers back;

- OS you are on, and programming language you'd like to use.

BTW, this seems less a request for advice than a request for a ready program.

Rgds, julio

To give you a 'bare bones' program that you can adapt to your circumstances.

This assumes that the fortran program takes two command line arguments which you have provided from a form as 'par1' and 'par2'. The output of your fortran program is output in a <PRE> tag in an HTML document.

--- cut here ---
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
require "cgi-bin.pl";
&ReadParse;

@output = `yrFortran $in{'par1'} $in{'par2'}`;

print <<__END__;
Content-type: text/html

<html>
<head></head>
<body>
  <pre>
  @output
  </pre>
</body>
</html>
__END__
1;
--- end ---
