In the Beginning, we wrote the Code in Fortran, and saw that it was Good. As I talk with other Fortran programmers who, like me, are over 40, I find that only a fraction have made the transition to what I call "modern" Fortran--that is, Fortran after the Fortran 90 standard. That is unfortunate, because modern Fortran is better than pre-90 Fortran in several ways. Nowhere is that more dramatic than in the handling of space.
