This Linux Ratfor is derived from the public domain ratfor version 1.0
by Oz, Ken Yap, W. Bauske (IBM), and SEP (http://sepwww.stanford.edu).
It is still in the public domain.
Ratfor is short for Rational FORTRAN. If you are not familiar with Ratfor,
SEP has a good page
about it. It was used in the classic
Tools text by
published by Addison and Wesley.
1.04 - 2020-02-19
This version incorporates my attempt to make the string directive work.
You can use the -s command line option to change the type of array
elements generated for strings.
This version should work even when chars are unsigned.
Don't let gnbtok() walk off the beginning of infile (patch by Ole Streicher).
Added tests and performed some code cleanup.
1.03 - 2015-12-03
I incorporated the changes from Debian ratfor 1.0-15 and a fix for Debian
1.02 - 2015-09-16
I fixed several C compiler warnings, rpmlint warnings, and autoconf/automake
1.01 - 2001-03-04
I converted the source to ANSI C, added prototypes, adapted it for the GNU
autoconf mechanism, and made the test cases (all two of them!) actually
work. Because of these changes, I am distributing this as version 1.01.
However, I consider this program to be stable.
I have binary RPMS and source
RPMS available, as well as the source code:
Other Things You Will Need
The ratfor preprocessor outputs FORTRAN 77. Please note that you will need
a FORTRAN 77 compiler (such as
GNU Fortran, part of
the GNU Compiler Collection) to compile and
run the output of Ratfor.
