What is a for file?

FOR files are text files containing streams of source code written by a computer programmer. FOR files are usually located in a Source Tree, a hierarchical organization of files. A compiler translates source code files to machine code so that the computer system can read and execute program functions. FOR is one of the filename extensions used in Fortran, a computer programming language developed by IBM and mainly used in the scientific community. Given its ability to carry out intensive computational tasks, Fortran has remained a popular language in high-performance computing. Fortran is the primary programming language used to predict weather patterns, partial differential equations and in computational fluid dynamics, physics, chemistry and economics.  FOR files are stored in the ASCII format like BAT and CFG files.
