Recompiling TRNSYS as a Platform Independent Executable

At its core, TRNSYS has always been a FORTRAN program. All of the standard component models are written in FORTRAN77 with a few exceptions written in FORTRAN90. With the rise in popularity of the Windows operating system during the 1990s, a number of operating system based features (such as the online plotter and communication with external programs) were added to increase the program’s capabilities. However, it should be pointed out that by shutting off these options, TRNSYS can be recompiled as a FORTRAN Console Application (a platform independent executable.) This document describes a procedure for recompiling and running TRNSYS in this manner.
