NAMEfc - frontend script to the f2c fortran compiler
SYNOPSIS/usr/bin/fc [-o objfile] [-c] [-S] [-C] [-u] [-w] [-w66] [-D switch] [-I includepath] [-Ntnnn] [-P] files [-l library]
is a script intended to be used as a front end to the
FORTRAN-to-C translator. It is supposed to make the whole
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 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 bounds.
- -l library
- 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.
- Complain about undeclared variables.
- -v, --version
- Print version of f2c in use
- Omit all warning messages.
- Omit Fortran 66 (Fortran IV) compatibility warning messages.
- -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.
BUGSfc isn't really very good -- try fort77 (1), which does a better job.
This manual page isn't really very good either...
