The numbers behind the name are roughly the year of the standard. 
FORTRAN 66 and FORTRAN 77 used all caps. Fortran 90 and later 
dropped the all caps thing.

Modern Fortran isn't bad if you're working in the domain for 
which it was written. I wouldn't hesitate to take it over C, C++, 
or Rust for that type of work.
