Project Description

I need a Fortran source code beautifier developed in Python.


- case: options

= everything uppercase

= only keywords uppecase

= everything lowercase

= same, but preserve variables that are already mixed case

but: leave comments and strings intact

- indentation: size of indent is a parameter

= if- statement, do- loops, select case- statements

= continued long subroutine calls and long variable declaration list: after continuation lines should be indented as +n wrt starting line,

n=5 (parameter)

- variable declarations: rewrite variable declarations to Fortran 90 style:

integer n, m(10,20)


integer :: n, m(10,20)

same for all other types (real, complex)

option to convert back and forth between

complex*16 complex(8)

real*8 real(8)

integer*8 integer(8)

character*10 str


character(len=10) :: str

Feature to reformat back and forth between F77 fixed format and F90 free source format

(in F77 line continuation character must be '&')

- spacing:

= option of space/no space after ',' in variable declarations, subroutine parameters, etc

= if (stmt1 .and. stmt2) then ...

= spacing arithmetic expressions is same as in all well-established languages (a + b*c), a = 3

= option (default=no spaces) in array dimensions: a(1,2)

= no space in subrotine calls around '(', ')':

call foo(1, b, c(2,3))

= option: space/no space in 'end do enddo', 'end if endif'

In case of doubt follow common sense, refer to Google C++ or Python style guide or ask me.
