    Can Dev-C++ compile Fortran 77?

    Can the stable release of Dev-C++ compile Fortran 77? Dev-C++5, currently beta, "support GCC-based compilers." Since GCC (g77) compiles Fortran 77, I wasn't sure if Dev-C++ could as well.

    Check the bin directory for a g77.exe

    This suggests the answer is "yes"
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    While MinGW does have a fortran compiler I'm not so sure you can configure dev-cpp to use it. Dev-cpp is set up primarily or even exclusively for c or c++ compilation. However, it might be possible to use a custom makefile and have dev-cpp invoke that to build your fortran projects - take a look in the project options dialog.
