ASA(1)                     OpenBSD Reference Manual                     ASA(1)

     asa, fpr - interpret carriage-control characters

     asa [file ...]
     fpr [file ...]

     The asa utility reads files sequentially, mapping FORTRAN carriage-con-
     trol characters to line-printer control sequences, and writes them to the
     standard output.

     The first character of each line is interpreted as a carriage-control
     character.  Additionally, the following characters are interpreted as

             Output the rest of the line without change.

     0       Output a newline (`\n') character before printing the rest of the

     1       Output a <formfeed> character before printing the rest of the

     +       The trailing newline (`\n') of the previous line is replaced by a
             carriage-return (`\r') before printing the rest of the line.

     Lines beginning with characters other than the above are treated as if
     they begin with a space (` ').

     To view a file containing the output of a FORTRAN program:
           asa file

     To format the output of a FORTRAN program and redirect it to a line-
           a.out | asa | lpr

     The asa utility exits 0 on success or >0 if an error occurred.


     The asa utility conforms to IEEE Std1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2''). The fpr
     utility is deprecated and its use should be restricted.
