ASA(1)                      General Commands Manual                     ASA(1)

NAME
     asa -- interpret carriage-control characters

SYNOPSIS
     asa [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The asa utility reads files sequentially, mapping FORTRAN carriage-
     control 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.  The following characters are interpreted as follows:

     <space>  Output the rest of the line without change.

     0        Output a <newline> character before printing the rest of the
              line.

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

     +        The trailing <newline> of the previous line is replaced by a
              <carriage-return> before printing the rest of the line.

     Lines beginning with characters other than the above are treated as if
     they begin with <space>.

EXIT STATUS
     The asa utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES
     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-
     printer:
           a.out | asa | lpr

SEE ALSO
     f77(1)

STANDARDS
     The asa utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'') and to
     X/Open Commands and Utilities Issue 5 (``XCU5'').
