...not *currently* usable. Fwrap's fortran-C wrappers use features
defined in the 2003 standard that make it easy to generate portable
wrapping code. These features allow wrapping of fortran
g77 support is certainly possible, given sufficient effort. I am in
favor of it, but someone else will have to do it (I'm happy to pitch
in, of course). It will require a good deal of work that I can't
justify given my requirements for the tool.
