This is a Perl implementation of the Fortran 77 formatted input/output
facility. One possible use is for producing input files for old Fortran
programs, making sure that their column-oriented records are rigorously
correct. Fortran formats may also have some advantages over printf in some
cases: it is very easy to output an array, reusing the format as needed; and
the syntax for repeated columns is more concise. Unlike printf, for good or
ill, Fortran-formatted fields never exceed their desired width.
This implementation was written in pure Perl, with portability and
correctness in mind. It implements the full ANSI standard for Fortran 77
Formats (or at least it should). It was not written with speed in mind, so if
you need to process millions of records it may not be what you need.
