Fortran preprocessor for FORTRAN 77 and Fortran 90 programs
fpp is a Fortran preprocessor for FORTRAN 77 and Fortran 90 programs.
Historically, the source code preprocessor found in standard C compilers, cpp, has been used to provide Fortran programmers with preprocessing capabilities. However, cpp is too closely tied into the C language syntax and source line format to be used without careful scrutiny. The proposed Fortran PreProcessor, fpp, would provide Fortran-specific source code capabilities that C programmers have come to expect in UNIX environments.
