This module tries to figure out how to link C programs with
Fortran subroutines on your system. Basically one must add a list
of Fortran runtime libraries. The problem is their location
and name varies with each OS/compiler combination!
This module tries to implement a simple
rule-of-thumb database for various flavours of UNIX systems.
A simple self-documenting Perl database of knowledge/code
for figuring out how to link for various combinations of OS and
compiler is embedded in the modules Perl code. Please help
save the world by sending database entries for
your system to firstname.lastname@example.org
Note the default on most systems is now to search for a generic GNU compiler
which can be g77, gfortran or g95 and then find the appropriate link
libraries automatically. (This is the Generic GNU database entry
in the code.)
The library list which the module returns
can be explicitly overridden by setting the environment
variable F77LIBS, e.g.
% setenv F77LIBS "-lfoo -lbar"
% perl Makefile.PL
