fpr - print Fortran file SYNOPSIS
Fpr is a filter that transforms files formatted according to Fortran's carriage control conventions into files formatted according to UNIX line printer conventions. Fpr copies its input onto its output, replacing the carriage control characters with characters that will produce the intended effects when printed using lpr(1). The first character of each line determines the vertical spacing as follows: +---------------+--------------------------------+ | Character | Vertical Space Before Printing | |---------------+--------------------------------| | Blank | One line | | 0 | Two lines | | 1 | To first line of next page | | + | No advance | +---------------+--------------------------------+ A blank line is treated as if its first character is a blank. A blank that appears as a carriage control character is deleted. A zero is changed to a newline. A one is changed to a form feed. The effects of a "+" are simulated using backspaces. EXAMPLES
a.out | fpr | lpr fpr < f77.output | lpr BUGS
Results are undefined for input lines longer than 170 characters. 4.2 Berkeley Distribution May 7, 1986 FPR(1)

asa -- interpret carriage-control characters SYNOPSIS
asa [file ...] DESCRIPTION
The asa utility reads files sequentially, mapping FORTRAN carriage-control characters to line-printer control sequences, and writes them to the standard output. The first character of each line is interpreted as a carriage-control character. The following characters are interpreted as follows: <space> Output the rest of the line without change. 0 Output a <newline> character before printing the rest of the line. 1 Output a <formfeed> character before printing the rest of the line. + The trailing <newline> of the previous line is replaced by a <carriage-return> before printing the rest of the line. Lines beginning with characters other than the above are treated as if they begin with <space>. EXIT STATUS
The asa utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. EXAMPLES
To view a file containing the output of a FORTRAN program: asa file To format the output of a FORTRAN program and redirect it to a line-printer: a.out | asa | lpr SEE ALSO
The asa utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1''). AUTHORS
