A semantic checker for Fortran 77 programs

ftnchek (short for Fortran checker) is a tool designed to detect certain errors in a Fortran program that a compiler usually does not, thus assisting users in the debugging of their Fortran programs.

Unlike syntax errors, semantic errors are legal in the Fortran language but are wasteful or may cause incorrect operation. For example, variables which are never used may indicate some omission in the program; uninitialized variables contain garbage which may cause incorrect results to be calculated; and variables which are not declared may not have the intended type.

ftnchek can also be used to provide call-trees, cross-reference of subprogram calls and COMMON blocks usage, source listings, symbol tables and other things you might find useful when debugging a Fortran program.

ftncheck for Debian

ftnchek is a static analyser which checks Fortran source for
correctness.  It currently supports Fortran 77 and some aspects of
Fortran 90 and 95.  It is intended to improve on the error detection
facilities of compilers, identifying problems which are either hard to
catch and constructs which (while strictly legal) are likely to indicate
an error.
