[Pw_forum] about the program style of pwscf

Pardon me, but your question is rather bizarre. PWscf is written mostly in standard Fortran90 (plus some parts in C and F77 for library functions in clib and flib), so if you know this language you should not find very difficult to read the code. In theory, programming F90 for either Linux or Windows or whatever OS should make no difference, since it is the compiler which takes care of translating your program into a language which can be understood by your hardware/software combination (in practice there may be some small things to fix, but you don't need to care about that at this stage).

Regarding the learning of F90 language, well I guess you can start with some tutorial that you can find on the web (just search for "Fortran 90 tutorial" or something similar) or borrow any F90 programming textbook from the library.
