Dimensional analysis is important in scientific and engineering programming for two main reasons:
With Dimensional Generator, these functions are automatic.
This is for Fortran programmers. You can program in any dialect of Fortran you like, but your compiler must have modern Fortran capability. Users of stripped-down Fortran compilers that concentrate on modern language features, such as F, will probably have no problem.
You can use the file from Dimensional Generator with any compiler and operating system you choose. (Dimensional Generator itself runs under Windows, but its output is completely portable.)
The download package (0.97 megabytes) is a Zip file. It contains
A users manual for Dimensional Generator, version 2.3,
A very short sample program, which the manual explains, that uses all the features of Dimensional Generator,
An executable file for Dimensional Generator version 2.3 under Windows.
This program only reads a short ASCII text file and writes another ASCII file. It does not
Read from or write to your registry.
Communicate over your Internet or any other network connection.
Open new windows of any sort, such as pop-ups.
Contain any sort of advertizing (unless you so count the conventional text reference to Different.Software as the author of the program).
Do anything else obnoxious.
If you download this free program, please tell me, or otherwise comment. (No obligation.)
Here is another example, suggested by Terence Wright.
