Came across this post while reading about : news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2 "A slight performance gain of 1% by using Fortran has a noticeable effect on long-term economic gains" because bank is doing 100 million transactions a second. Can someone explain how is supposed to handle this transaction volume? Also, I want to learn FORTRAN now. What are your favorite FORTRAN books?
