NAME

binfmtf-interpreter - binfmt_misc fortran handler

SYNOPSIS

binfmtf-interpreter fortran-source-file-name [command-line opions ...]

DESCRIPTION

binfmtf-interpreter compiles a fortran source file specified on the command-line using the g77 compiler, and executes the resulting file.
 
It is designed to be used as a handler for binfmt_misc handler, which is a system used in Linux for handling arbitrary files as executables.
 
The command-line options are passed on to the compiled binary.

That line also is used to specify the additional command-line options for Fortran compiler.
