Code Development



Numerous compilers are available to provide a rich programming environment for scientific and technical computing.

  • The Portland Group Server (full suite of parallelizing F77, F90, HPF, C, C++ compilers and development tools)

f77 – Fortran 77

f90 – Fortarn 90

gcc – C

gCC – C++

  • standard compilers under Linux

gcc – C

g++ – C++

g77 – Fortran 77

For more information on command-line options for each compiling system, see the man pages (man gcc, etc.).

File Editors

Many text editors are available on Linux system. Most editors have a man page. Type man editor_name for usage information.

The following editors are available on most UNIX and/or Linux systems.

  • ed, red—standard line editors; red is a “restricted” ed because it can only edit files in the current directory and it cannot execute shell commands.
  • sed—a stream editor for batch processing of files.
  • vi—a visual editor; full screen; uses ed/ex line-mode commands for global file editing.
  • edit—a simple line editor.
  • ex—an extended line editor.
  • vim—Vi IMproved, a text editor that is upward compatible to vi.
  • Emacs—GNU project Emacs editor.

New Code Developer

Are you a researcher with a new code development project?  Use our new Trak server at http://codeblue.umich.edu to create a free Trak site you control for your open-source or private code development projects. CodeBlue hosts software projects developed at the University of Michigan. Like Assembla and SourceForge, codeblue hosts source code and provides a complete set of collaborative development tools. Unlike other freely available hosting options, CodeBlue will host both open and closed source projects – a must for any research group developing internal code.  Open projects exhibit a U-M brand identity by being located under the codeblue.umich.edu .
