Source code conversion program from ftp
---------------------------------------

Many people who start to code in Fortran 90 prefer to do so using
the new, less restictive, source form. However, a problem arises
when wanting to modify old FORTRAN 77 code while sticking to the
new style. To help in this situation, a source code conversion
program has been written (and well tested) and made availble by
anonymous ftp.

Apart from the conversion, the program can:

o ensure that blanks are used correctly in the code as they
are significant with the new source form;

o indent DO-loops and IF-blocks;

o replace CONTINUE by END DO, where appropriate;

o add subprogram names to END statements;

o change non-standard length specification syntax,
like INTEGER*2, to the Fortran 90 equivalent,
in all contexts (type statements, FUNCTION statements,
and IMPLICIT statements);

o produce an interface block automatically from the
source code of a procedure - useful to the library
developer when wishing to use this important new
facility with an existing library.

The source code can be obtained by anonymous
ftp to:

jkr.cc.rl.ac.uk (130.246.8.23)

When prompted for a userid, reply with: anonymous
and give your name as password.
The directory is /pub/MandR and the file name is convert.f90.
