NAME
       fc - 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]

DESCRIPTION
       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
       files.


OPTIONS
       -o objfile
               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
               as *.o.

       -S      Produce assembly output as file.s

       -C      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.

       -u      Complain about undeclared variables.

       -v, --version
               Print version of f2c in use

       -w      Omit all warning messages.

       -w66    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.

       -Ntnnn  Allow nnn entries in table t.

       -P      Emit .P files.

BUGS
       fc isn't really very good -- try fort77 (1), which does a better job.
       This manual page isn't really very good either...
