.SH NAME
fc \- frontend script to the f2c fortran compiler
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B /usr/bin/fc 
.RB [ \-o
.IR objfile ]
.RB [ \-c ]
.RB [ \-S ]
.RB [ \-C ]
.RB [ \-u ]
.RB [ \-w ]
.RB [ \-w66 ]
.RB [ \-D
.IR switch ]
.RB [ \-I
.IR includepath ]
.RB [ \-Ntnnn ]
.RB [ \-P ]
.I files
.RB [ \-l
.IR library ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.LP
.B fc 
is a script intended to be used as a front end to the 
.B f2c
FORTRAN-to-C translator. It is supposed to make the whole 
.B f2c 
and C compiler setup look like a real Fortran compiler.

File arguments with a 
.B .f 
suffix are compiled as Fortran source.
Files with a 
.B .F 
suffix are passed through the C preprocessor
.B cpp(1)
first. Files with 
.B .c 
(C source) or 
.B .s 
(assembly source)
suffixes are passed to the C compiler directly.
Files with a 
.B .e 
suffix are treated as efl source files, and
files with a
.B .r
suffix are treated as RATFOR source files.

.SH OPTIONS
.TP 8
.I \-o objfile
Produce an output executable named
.I objfile
rather than using the default name a.out.
.TP 8
.I \-c
Do not call the linker; instead, leave relocatable object files
as *.o.
.TP 8
.I \-S
Produce assembly output as file.s
.TP 8
.I \-C
Compile in extra code to check that array subscripts are in bounds.
.TP 8
.I \-l library
Libraries specified with this option are passed to the linker.
.TP 8
.I \-U def
Definitions specified with this option are passed to C compiler (for .c files)
or to cpp (for .F files) to remove definition.
.TP 8
.I \-u
Complain about undeclared variables.
.TP 8
.I \-v, \-\-version
Print version of f2c in use
.TP 8
.I \-w
Omit all warning messages.
.TP 8
.I \-w66
Omit Fortran 66 (Fortran IV) compatibility warning messages.
.TP 8
.I \-D switch
The given switch is passed to the C compiler (for .c files), to cpp 
(for .F files) and to f2c.
.TP 8
.I \-I includepath
Passed to the C compiler (for .c files), to cpp (for .F files)
and to f2c.
.TP 8
.I \-Ntnnn
Allow nnn entries in table t.
.TP 8
.I \-P
Emit .P files.
.SH BUGS
.B fc
isn't really very good -- try fort77 (1), which does a better job.
.br
This manual page isn't really very good either...
