# Welcome to F2CL

F2CL is a Fortran to Common Lisp converter that can convert Fortran 77 (with some extensions) to Common Lisp.

## Getting F2CL

The easiest way to get F2CL is to clone the hg (Mercurial) repository:

hg clone http://common-lisp.net/project/f2cl/hg/f2cl

For developers with ssh access, you can use

hg clone ssh://user@common-lisp.net//project/f2cl/public_html/hg/f2cl

Substitute your user name for "user", of course. Also, note the two slashes before project. These are important.

## Quick Start to Using F2CL

First, you need to load f2cl. This can be done simply with

(asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op :f2cl)

assuming that `asdf` can find `f2cl.asd`.

Once F2CL is loaded, you can convert a Fortran file to Lisp using

(f2cl:f2cl "src.f")

This will convert the Fortran code in `src.f` and place the
translation in `src.lisp`.

Or you can convert and compile the result using

(f2cl:f2cl-compile "src.f")

This does the conversion and then calls `COMPILE-FILE` to compile
the resulting Lisp code.

## Examples

F2CL comes with many examples of converting Fortran code to Lisp.
Look in the `packages` directory for the examples. Included
packages are:

- colnew - Boundary-value problems for ODEs
- fishpack - Solve separable elliptic PDEs
- hompack - Solves non-linear systems of equations by homotopy methods.
- minpack - Solves non-linear equations and non-linear least squares problems
- odepack - Initial value problem for ODEs
- quadpack - Numerical integration
- TOMS 419 - Zeroes of a complex polynomial
- TOMS 715 - Numerical evaluation of Special functions
- TOMS 717 - Max- and quasi-likelihood estimation in non-linear regression

These packages are not officially a part of F2CL. They are packages used to test F2CL.
