fpr - print Fortran file
fpr is a filter that transforms files formatted according to Fortran's
carriage control conventions into files formatted according to UNIX line
fpr copies its input onto its output, replacing the carriage control
characters with characters that will produce the intended effects when
printed using lpr(1). The first character of each line determines the
vertical spacing as follows:
Blank One line
0 Two lines
1 To first line of next page
+ No advance
A blank line is treated as if its first character is a blank. A blank
that appears as a carriage control character is deleted. A zero is
changed to a newline. A one is changed to a form feed. The effects of a
"+" are simulated using backspaces.
a.out | fpr | lpr
fpr < f77.output | lpr
The fpr command appeared in 4.2BSD.
Results are undefined for input lines longer than 170 characters.
