This is a true story folks (I couldn't have made it up - I don't speak French): I spoke with a colleague about doing some time series analysis, and he offered to send me several of his subroutines. Since he is an 'old-timer' I was not surprised to see that all of his files had the extension '.f' (which denotes that a program is writen in the FORTRAN language). I figured that although my FORTRAN is a bit rusty I can still take a hack at it. Maybe I can even run it through a FORTRAN to C converter and get off easy. So I listed the first source file and to my shock I found the following at the top of the file: subroutine bande_passante( y, pas_temps, f_poids, 1 f_1, f_2, f_largeur, lacune_valeur, n_lacunes, lacunes_debut, 2 lacunes_fin, n_donnees, donnees_debut, donnees_fin, 3 titre, t_j, y_o, mode, y_label ) c c============================================================================= c Faire une filtrage d'un sequence temporelle c============================================================================= c c du sequence y, commencante a la pointe n_1, et allant jusqu'au n_temps c c Si 'f_poids' = 0, n_temps est pris comme 2**n, est il n'y a pas c d'extension. \. \. \. It seems in this case, '.f' means the program was written in the FRENCH language. So now I am looking for a FRENCH to C converter, does anyone have any leads?
