Re: FORTRAN90 - What and Where
FORTRAN90 is the ANSI FORTRAN committee's attempt to update the fortran standard to a more modern language. The language technology is late 1980s, early 1990s. Some of the differences include Dynamic memory allocation and array notation that eases optimization for high performance computers and parallel processors.

There are several software packages that provide tools to convert code from FORTRAN77 to FORTRAN90 and vis-versa. My favorite over the years is made by Pacific Sierra. Their web page also has a summary of the FORTRAN90 language. Check out:

Good luck
