lpr filter for FORTRAN carriage control output?

On some SYSV variants (example: Fujitsu's UXP/M) there is a
command "asa" which does this conversion. On IBM AIX, there
is the same program. It is also sometimes available under
the alias "fpr".

Hope this helps,

1. need lpr filter to handle F77 carriage control characters

  We've just hooked up a Fuji lineprinter to our Sun 4/390, and were
disappointed to find that the F77 carriage control characters were not
being interpreted on our printouts.

  Before I try to hack up a filter to do this, I thought I'd ask around
to see if there's a filter readily available. Any help would be
appreciated, of course...
