In the News "Modern science relies upon researchers sharing their work so that their peers can check and verify success or failure. But most scientists still don't share one crucial piece of information - the source codes of the computer programs driving much of today's scientific progress." Pretty crazy this isn't the norm yet.

Oh right.

Well that is interesting from a development prospective because I know that certain fortran code is particularly well debugged and I wonder how they recreate the accuracy of some numerical results.
