Fortran support/syntax highlighting in RStudio


according to this recent post

more than 30% of the R codebase is written in Fortran. Moreover, contrarily to what some seem to ignore, the Fortran language standard is continuously evolving and offers a mature and convenient programming language for HPC to support R.

For these reasons, I think RStudio would be a much better piece of software if it supported Fortran syntax highlighting. A good starting point could be taking the keywords and schemes from here

but maybe there are more up to date sources for this.

Kind regards,


You would get more attention if you properly file a feature request on the GitHub repository for the IDE

Thank you, just did it.
