NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for asa (netbsd section 1)

ASA(1)				   BSD General Commands Manual				   ASA(1)

NAME
     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 fol-
     lowing 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 exit 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
     f77(1)

STANDARDS
     The asa utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'') and to X/Open Commands and
     Utilities Issue 5 (``XCU5'').
