Author Comments:
The initial draft of this bibliography was derived from the OCLC Contents1st database, after conversion to BibTeX form, and extensive editing and correction. This was then augmented with entries from the author's personal bibliography files, from the computer graphics bibliography archive at, and from a very large computer science bibliography collection on in /pub/bibliography to which many people of have contributed. The snapshot of this collection was taken on 5-May-1994, and it consists of 441 BibTeX files, 2,672,675 lines, 205,289 entries, and 6,375 <at>String abbreviations, occupying 94.8MB of disk space. Where multiple sources of a particular entry existed, field values have been manually merged to preserve maximal information.
In the entries below, bibsource strings record short relative file path names to the note the origin of the entry, though in many cases, the entry has since been corrected or extended.
Regrettably, the OCLC databases do not cover the journal ACM Fortran Forum, which is what I first set out to find. It seemed worthwhile to preserve the results of the searches in this general bibliography on Fortran.
A great many hours of editing effort have been devoted to tracking down missing or incomplete information in these entries, but some still have gaps due to deficiencies of the original catalog sources. A lot of hand work was also required to provide the field markup that is mostly absent from library catalogs. Were libraries to adopt a rigorous catalog markup system, perhaps SGML based, and subjectable to automatic syntax, spelling, and consistency checks, the academic community would benefit significantly.
