Absoft Window Environment Application Framework
Automatically Build Graphical Program Interfaces for Windows, Mac & Linux
Absoft's AWE solves the problem of how to automatically create a graphical interface for your Fortran application on Windows, Linux & Mac OS X.
No need to learn the system APIs. Usually, when you want to create applications with windows and menus, you need to know how to use the system APIs and interface guidelines. However, AWE, a library included FREE with Pro Fortran for Windows, Linux & Mac can automatically give your program a native window-style interface with menus and texts window. AWE allows you to create applications with windows and menus, without knowledge of the system API and user interface guidelines.
AWE is a collection of pre-compiled routines that you simply link with your program. All that is required to create AWE applications is to select the AWE option from the target type dialog box in the Absoft Developer Tools Interface. Selecting AWE will cause your program to be built as a stand-alone, double-clickable application with AWE providing a window and menus interface.
Customizable source code for AWE is included with Absoft compilers that allows you to control the most aspects an AWE application.
How Your Program and AWE Work Together
Additional AWE text windows files
may be opened and connected to Fortran units with extensions to the
An AWE application is an MDI (Multiple Document Interface) or SDI (Single Document Interface) type of application. For an MDI application there is an application frame window that can support multiple document windows within that frame. For SDI applications, all document windows are opened in there own frames
Additional text windows can be created with the Fortran OPEN statement. An AWE window no limit on the number of characters or lines.
AWE provides a number of functions
for adding menu commands, providing routines that respond to user menu selections, and modifying menu items. New menus and menu commands are added to the AWE default menu. Full descriptions of these functions are provided in the Absoft User Guide.
