Bug#389773: ITP: cnf -- library for C and Fortran mixed programming

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Enrico Zini <enrico@debian.org>

* Package name    : cnf
  Version         : 4.0
  Upstream Author : Various from Council for the Central Laboratory of
		    the Research Councils ("CCLRC") and stated at the
		    beginning of every source file.
* URL             : http://www.starlink.ac.uk/cgi-store/ftpform1?cnf
* License         : GPL version 2
                    (see http://www.starlink.rl.ac.uk/store/conditions.html)
  Programming Lang: C
  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.
