.f File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Fortran Source Code File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .f. Files with the file extension .f can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .f files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .f file?

A Fortran source code file is classified as a developer file, and these Fortran source code files can be created and edited by any .f the Fortran development programs. The content .f a Fortran source code file is encoded and compiled using F format specifications and standards. The data contained in an F file includes source codes and other application details that correspond to a program developed using the Fortran programming language. The C-PreProcessor software must preprocess the data stored in an F file, and this is done for the processed source code to then be transmitted to the Fortran compiler. Since These Fortran source code files are affixed with the .f extension, and these are also text files because plain text and binary encoding standards are also implemented into the F format. This means there are many text editing applications developed for Microsoft Windows-based systems and Mac platforms that can be used to open and view the content .f these F files.

how to open a .f file?

Launch a .f file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .f file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .f files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .f file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .f file will open the correct application.

High Performance FORTRAN

High Performance FORTRAN

HPF or High Performance Fortran is a collective set of extensions to Fortran 90 with structures that support parallel computing. It is published and supported by HPFF, a coalition of industry, laboratory and academe representatives that work on HPF. HPF uses data parallel computation to support a single array’s computation to spread over multiple processors. This enables efficient application for MIMD and SIMD architectures. HPF features compiler directives for distributions recommended for array data, additional library routines that include parallel suffix/prefix, environmental inquiry, sorting operations and data scattering, extrinsic procedure interfacing to non-HPF parallel procedures like message passing, and new Fortran statements like FORALL and ability to make PURE [side-effect free] procedures.
Apple Xcode

Apple Xcode

Apple Xcode is an IDE, which is an abbreviation of Integrated Development Environment, that consists of software development tools suite. It is created by Apply for OS X and iOS operated developing software. It is made to design, build and debug an innovative and more intuitive environment for Mac OS X computers and iOS devices. Among the primary functions this IDE can do for a user are to have a complete and quick access to the OS since OS X is integrated with many advanced technologies that are simple and easy to use, and to create apps using Core Animation, OpenGL and Core Image. The use of an application can be driven hands free using AppleScript or Automator. The graphics framework technologies built-in enable a user to create drawings, animations and other multimedia elements in 2D and 3D. It is also integrated with Cocoa Frameworks, which is a high level programming environment that can provide complete access to the operating system. This makes designing and animation a lot more fun and easier for users.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .f files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .f. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
