1.TH ANSI2KNR 1 "19 Jan 1996" 2.SH NAME 3ansi2knr \- convert ANSI C to Kernighan & Ritchie C 4.SH SYNOPSIS 5.I ansi2knr 6[--varargs] input_file [output_file] 7.SH DESCRIPTION 8If no output_file is supplied, output goes to stdout. 9.br 10There are no error messages. 11.sp 12.I ansi2knr 13recognizes function definitions by seeing a non-keyword identifier at the left 14margin, followed by a left parenthesis, with a right parenthesis as the last 15character on the line, and with a left brace as the first token on the 16following line (ignoring possible intervening comments). It will recognize a 17multi-line header provided that no intervening line ends with a left or right 18brace or a semicolon. These algorithms ignore whitespace and comments, except 19that the function name must be the first thing on the line. 20.sp 21The following constructs will confuse it: 22.br 23 - Any other construct that starts at the left margin and follows the 24above syntax (such as a macro or function call). 25.br 26 - Some macros that tinker with the syntax of the function header. 27.sp 28The --varargs switch is obsolete, and is recognized only for 29backwards compatibility. The present version of 30.I ansi2knr 31will always attempt to convert a ... argument to va_alist and va_dcl. 32.SH AUTHOR 33L. Peter Deutsch <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote the original ansi2knr and 34continues to maintain the current version; most of the code in the current 35version is his work. ansi2knr also includes contributions by Francois 36Pinard <email@example.com> and Jim Avera <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
