I thought this may be of interest to the readers of this list:

fable - Automatic Fortran to C++ conversion

    * fable converts fixed-format Fortran sources to C++. The generated
      C++ code is designed to be human-readable and suitable for further
      development. In many cases it can be compiled and run without manual
      intervention.

    * fable comes with the C++ fem Fortran EMulation library. The entire
      fem library is inlined and therefore very easy to use.

    * The fem library has no dependencies other than a standard C++ compiler.

    * fable is written in Python (version 2.x)

    * The fable Fortran reader could be re-used to generate code for other
      target languages.

    * fable/fem is open source.
