fpr -- print Fortran file
fpr is a filter that transforms files formatted according to Fortran's carriage control con-
ventions into files formatted according to UNIX line printer conventions.
fpr copies its input onto its output, replacing the carriage control characters with charac-
ters that will produce the intended effects when printed using lpr(1). The first character
of each line determines the vertical spacing as follows:
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.

The fpr command appeared in 4.2BSD.
Results are undefined for input lines longer than 170 characters.
