Hello,

I'm trying to call a fortran sub routine in c#.

I have the following questions:
1. Syntax of calling sub routine
2. How to pass in variables, I read they need to be passed in by reference.
3. Where to specify the fortran version


Is there a basic example

Thanks

Thanks for the references

In the DllImport tag should I add the path to the dll as well as the name?  I tried to add the dll as a reference to the project although it returned an error stating "please make sure your file is accessible, and that it is a valid assembly or COM component".

Add the DLL to your projects (Debug,Release) /bin folder. Then you can write your DllImport() using the DLL name only. When you deploy your application copy the DLL into the same location as your executable or Windows directory or System32 directory these are the search locations your application uses to to locate your library. The recommended way is to add your DLL to the same directory as your executable when deploying.

Can you show us the sub routine?
