fc - frontend script to the f2c fortran compiler
] [-D switch
is a script intended to be used as a front end to the f2c
FORTRAN-to-C translator. It is supposed to make the whole f2c
compiler setup look like a real Fortran compiler.
File arguments with a .f
suffix are compiled as Fortran source. Files
with a .F
suffix are passed through the C preprocessor cpp(1)
first. Files with .c
(C source) or .s
(assembly source) suffixes
are passed to the C compiler directly. Files with a .e
treated as efl source files, and files with a .r
suffix are treated as
RATFOR source files.
- -o objfile
- Produce an output executable named objfile rather
than using the default name a.out.
- Do not call the linker; instead, leave relocatable object
files as *.o.
- Produce assembly output as file.s
- Compile in extra code to check that array subscripts are in
- -l library
- Libraries specified with this option are passed to the
- -U def
- Definitions specified with this option are passed to C
compiler (for .c files) or to cpp (for .F files) to remove
- Complain about undeclared variables.
- -v, --version
- Print version of f2c in use
- Omit all warning messages.
- Omit Fortran 66 (Fortran IV) compatibility warning
- -D switch
- The given switch is passed to the C compiler (for .c
files), to cpp (for .F files) and to f2c.
- -I includepath
- Passed to the C compiler (for .c files), to cpp (for .F
files) and to f2c.
- Allow nnn entries in table t.
- Emit .P files.
isn't really very good -- try fort77 (1), which does a better job.
This manual page isn't really very good either...
S. Feldman, D. Gay, M. Maimone, N, Schryer are all mentioned in the paper on the
conversion of Fortran to C.
