Subject: Why does GDB currently still supports only the features of Fortran 77 language?

Message-ID: <> (raw)

Nowadays, it is well known that Fortran 77 is a rather archaic and
outdated Language, and it has been replicated by more modern Fortran
versions, such as
Fortran 90/95/2003/2008, and so on.

But in the documentation corresponding to the latest version of GDB
[1], I noticed the following description, which surprised me quite a

15.4.6 Fortran

GDB can be used to debug programs written in Fortran, but it currently
supports only the features of Fortran 77 language.

Today in the 21st century, why does GDB currently still supports only
the features of Fortran 77 language?
