Well, what kind of, ?driving?, are you interested in?  Is it an external
executable you can use by just passing in a few args from the shell and
capturing output?  Or do you have a set of number crunching routines you
would like to tie together in some sort of OO form?  If I assume the
latter, then your best bet may be to just use whatever interoperability
with C capabilities (without knowing more about your compiler) your
fortran compiler provides to create intermediary C wrappers and just
proceed from there.
