Description : library for C and Fortran mixed programming
The CNF package comprises two sets of software which ease the task of
writing portable programs in a mixture of FORTRAN and C. F77 is a set of
C macros for handling the FORTRAN/C subroutine linkage in a portable
way, and CNF is a set of functions to handle the difference between
FORTRAN and C character strings, logical values and pointers to
dynamically allocated memory.
The original distribution features an own packaging system, which was
good when it was made, but now it's a bit tricky to work with. To make
it easy package CNF for Debian and Fedora, I skipped part of the
original packaging and created a new makefile which wraps the old one
providing a more usual behaviour.
The package can be inspected at http://people.debian.org/~enrico/2006-09/cnf/
and I intend to proceed with the upload during the week-end.
