  2. Creation of programs with screen I/O and hints for the printing; (application types: console, standard graphics, QuickWin and Windows).
  3. Creating libraries (static libraries .lib and DLLs .dll), generation of DLLs and calling their functions
  4. Using the compiler & linker from the console or within batch files (.BAT) or from the command line
  5. Calling Windows API (Win32API) functions
  6. Mixed Language Programming
  7. Accessing databases via ODBC and SQL
  8. Possibilities of the GUI programming in Fortran (overview): Based on WinAPI, by means of the available tools; by usage of other proprietary tools (like Delphi, Visual Basic, PowerBuilder; Winteracter, GINOMENU & menu studio).
  9. Windows GUI programming: Use of the resource editor, integration and use of ressources in your program, calling and evaluation of dialogs and more.

The costs for an in-house course depend essentially on the number of participants, on the topics requested (some of them might need special preparation) and if necessary, on the costs for journey and overnight stay.
