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:
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.
