     asa, fpr - interpret carriage-control characters

     asa [file ...]
     fpr [file ...]

     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.	 Additionally, the following characters are interpreted as

	     Output the rest of the line without change.

     0	     Output a newline (`\n') character before printing the rest of the

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

     +	     The trailing newline (`\n') of the previous line is replaced by a
	     carriage-return (`\r') before printing the rest of the line.

     Lines beginning with characters other than the above are treated as if
     they begin with a space (` ').

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

     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-

	   $ a.out | asa | lpr

     The asa utility is compliant with the IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX'')
     specification, though its presence is optional.

     The fpr utility is deprecated and its use should be restricted.
