Fortran Mode

   Fortran mode provides special motion commands for Fortran statements
and subprograms, and indentation commands that understand Fortran
conventions of nesting, line numbers and continuation statements.
Fortran mode has it's own Auto Fill mode that breaks long lines into
proper Fortran continuation lines.

   Special commands for comments are provided because Fortran comments
are unlike those of other languages.

   Built-in abbrevs optionally save typing when you insert Fortran

   Use `M-x fortran-mode' to switch to this major mode.  This command
runs the hook `fortran-mode-hook' (Note: Hooks.).
