Microsoft FORTRAN 5.1

This is Microsoft's implementation of the FORTRAN scientific-oriented high level programming language. It was one of their early core languages developed for the 8-bit computers and later brought to the 8086 and IBM PC. For the IBM OEM version, see the IBM Fortran Compiler. In 1993 Microsoft rebranded the product as Microsoft Fortran Powerstation. (Note: -80 refers to the 8080/Z80 platform, not the language specification version)

Microsoft Fortran 5.0 added OS/2 1.1 support, and support for the 386 processor.

There is a review of the product in the May 15, 1989 Infoworld

5.1 also adds support for Windows 3.0.

Also of note, at this point IBM licensed a different Fortran compiler for IBM Fortran/2.
