NAME
     asa -- interpret carriage-control characters

SYNOPSIS
     asa [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     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.	 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 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
