The following characters are interpreted as follows: .Bl -tag -width "<space>" .It <space> Output the rest of the line without change. .It 0 Output a <newline> character before printing the rest of the line. .It 1 Output a <formfeed> character before printing the rest of the line. .It + The trailing <newline> of the previous line is replaced by a <carriage-return> before printing the rest of the line. .El .Pp Lines beginning with characters other than the above are treated as if they begin with <space>. .Sh EXAMPLES To view a file containing the output of a .Tn FORTRAN program: .Dl asa file .Pp To format the output of a .Tn FORTRAN program and redirect it to a line-printer. .Dl a.out | asa | lpr .Sh DIAGNOSTICS The .Nm utility exit 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr f77 1 .Sh STANDARDS The .Nm utility conforms to .St -p1003.2-92 . .Sh AUTHORS J.T.
