FortranMode

One of the ProgrammingModes that comes with Emacs supports Fortran.

There’s a section of the EmacsManual specifically documenting how to use it.

A newer mode for editing free-format code is F90Mode. It also comes with Emacs.

Use ‘f90-mode’ by adding the following to your InitFile.

    (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.f\\'" . f90-mode))

Information on configuring these modes is also in the manual. Also read the commentary at the top of the EmacsLisp source of these libraries to see more details, M-x find-library RET fortran RET or M-x find-library RET f90 RET.

Add-to list may not be necessary since Emacs normally uses Fortran-mode for files with extensions “f”, “F”, “for” ‘and F90-mode for files with extensions “f90”, “f95”, “f03”, “f08”. See the GNU Fortran manual for more information. -ColinBaxter
