Software that is compiled and ready to execute on a computer platform.
A program that can be executed as a self-contained procedure. It consists of a main program and, optionally, modules, subprograms and non-Fortran external procedures.
This refers to a computer program that can actually be run on the PC. In most cases it has been converted into machine code so that the operating system s understands it. This process of converting is called compiling the program. If you are trying to run a program & it does not do what you expect then you may well believe that executing the program is the best thing to do - it will make you feel better.
