This is not exactly an answer to your question, but some years
ago there was a tutorial published on how to turn your FORTRAN 
program into a Stata (Mata) program:

William Gould (2005) "Mata matters: Translating Fortran" The
Stata Journal, 5(3): 421--441.

This could be another solution to your problem...

Hope this helps,
Maarten
