The program development process consists of a number of stages
some of which may have to be repeated several times until the end
product is correct:
- Designing the program and writing the source-code text.
- Keying in the text to produce a set of Fortran source files.
- Compiling the source code to produce a set of object
- Linking the object modules and any object libraries into a
complete executable image.
- Running the executable program on some test data and
checking the results.
The main parts of the process are shown in the diagram below.
