[ITP] asa 1.1
Tue Sep 10 22:45:00 GMT 2013
Unless anyone else wants to, I volunteer to package and maintain an implementation of the POSIX asa utility. The implementation I have in mind was written by Thomas Koenig and its home is mentioned in the setup.hint file, below. It is a Fortran runtime utility that interprets carriage-control characters.
# This utility comes from ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/devel/lang/fortran
sdesc: "ASA Carriage control conversion for output by Fortran programs"
I don't know whether Base is the right category but it's pretty similar to what dos2unix does, the latter being part of Base.
