Fortran 95 lets you define data types with public and private members,
so some OOP is possible. There is a book "Object-Oriented Programming
via Fortran 90/95"
by Ed Akin. Fortra 2003 adds further support for OOP, including
inheritance. You can get a free Fortran 95 compiler for Linux from
www.g95.org . It still has some kinks but is usable for learning.
