FINDENT(1)                       User Commands                      FINDENT(1)

       findent - Indents and optionally converts Fortran program source

       findent [OPTION]...

       Findent reads from STDIN and writes to STDOUT.

       Findent  indents a Fortran source. Findent uses various kinds of inden‐
       tations, see OPTIONS. Findent can convert from fixed form to free form,
       and  can  supplement single END statements, see 'Refactor' below.  Com‐
       ment lines with '!' in column one are not indented.
        You can correct findent related indenting errors by inserting  comment
        !  findentfix: <fortran statement>
        where  <fortran  statement>  is for example DO, END, WHERE() etcetera.
       Findent will adjust the indentation according to <fortran statement>.
        Errors in OPTIONS are silently ignored.

   General options:
       Below: <n> denotes an unsigned decimal number.
              <c> denotes a character.

       In the long options, you can replace '_' with '-'.

       -Rr, --refactor_procedures
              refactor procedures and modules: the END line
               of a subroutine, program etc. is, if possible, replaced by
               'end subroutine <name>' or
               'end function <name>' or
               'end procedure <name>' or

              tine etc.
               NOTE1: if the END line contains a continuation the results  are
               NOTE2: a line like 'end function fun' will be replaced by
                      'end  subroutine  sub'  if the END line ends 'subroutine

       --deps output  dependency  information  only,  other flags are ignored.
              This can be used to generate a dependencies file for usage  with
               The format of this information:
               Fortran source      ->        findent output
                include "file1"  ->        inc file1
                #include "file2" ->        cpp file2
                #include <file3>   ->        std file3
                ??include 'file4'  ->        coc file4
                use module1        ->        use module1
                submodule(m) subm  ->        use m
                                             mod m:subm
                module module2     ->        mod module2

              outputs a sh(1) script that serves as a an example
               to generate dependencies for use in make(1).

       findent  parses  the environment variable FINDENT_FLAGS before the com‐
       mand-line flags

   Usage with vim:
              outputs directions to use findent in (g)vim

              outputs file 'fortran.vim', see --vim_help

              outputs file 'findent.vim', see --vim_help

   Usage with gedit:
              outputs directions to use findent in gedit

              outputs script 'findent-gedit', see --gedit_help

              outputs file 'findent.plugin', see --gedit_help

              outputs file 'python.py', see --gedit_help

   Usage with emacs:
              outputs directions to use findent in emacs

              outputs script 'findent.el', see --emacs_help

       indent: findent < in.f > out.f
               findent -i2 -r0 < in.f > out.f

       convert fixed to free form: findent -ofree < prog.f > prog.f90

       convert free to fixed form: findent -ofixed < prog.f90 > prog.f

       refactor 'end': findent -Rr < in.f90 > out.f90

       *      Also for free-format, findent is  space-insensitive,  while  the
              standard states that space must be used as general separator.

       *      There  are  some  issues with labels in a continuation when con‐
              verting from free to fixed format.  For example:

               4 continue

              The problems arise because it is not possible to define a state‐
              ment label in a continuation in fixed format.

       *      When  converting  from fixed format to free format, findent dis‐
              cards white space in a string if the string contains a continua‐
              tion, e.g:
                    print *,"a

              is converted to:
                 print *,"a&
