FORPXL-A Fortran interface to PXL, the Psychological Experiments Library MARTIN JÜTTNER* and HANS STRASBURGER Institute of Medical Psychology, University of Munich, Goethestrasse 31, D-80336 München, Germany Received 2 March 1996; revised 16 September 1996; accepted 16 September 1996 Abstract-FORPXL is a software interface that provides programs written in Fortran with a convenient and easily expandable access to the versatility of PXL, the C-based Psychological Experiments Library (Irtel, 1992). 1. DESCRIPTION Many laboratories devoted to psychophysical and psychological research still have a collection of potentially valuable Fortran programs that are obsolete for the following reasons: - their code is too long and complex to be easily ported to a more modem programming language; - they rely on graphics hardware which either no longer exists or does not meet modern requirements. To re-activate such programs in today's PC-controlled experimental environments, we have developed FORPXL, a Fortran interface to the Psychological Experiments' Library PXL. PXL (Irtel, 1992; see also Irtel, 1997) is a C-based programming environment and is now widely used for application programming in psychological research. It imple- ments a standardized and convenient scheme for the procedural control of experiments and for managing experimental parameters. From the programmer's perspective, writ-
