fc - frontend script to the f2c fortran compiler
/usr/bin/fc [-o objfile] [-c] [-S] [-C] [-u] [-w] [-w66] [-D switch]
[-I includepath] [-Ntnnn] [-P] files [-l library]
fc 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 and C 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 suffix are treated as efl
source files, and files with a .r suffix are treated as RATFOR source
Produce an output executable named objfile rather than using
the default name a.out.
-c Do not call the linker; instead, leave relocatable object files
-S Produce assembly output as file.s
-C Compile in extra code to check that array subscripts are in
Libraries specified with this option are passed to the linker.
-U def Definitions specified with this option are passed to C compiler
(for .c files) or to cpp (for .F files) to remove definition.
-u Complain about undeclared variables.
Print version of f2c in use
-w Omit all warning messages.
-w66 Omit Fortran 66 (Fortran IV) compatibility warning messages.
The given switch is passed to the C compiler (for .c files), to
cpp (for .F files) and to f2c.
Passed to the C compiler (for .c files), to cpp (for .F files)
and to f2c.
-Ntnnn Allow nnn entries in table t.
-P Emit .P files.
fc 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.
