Hi Denis,

You wrote,

: 1) I requested and received by email 8 files including the source code of f2c.
: I removed the header and tried to unpack the files with the sh command. This did not work.
: My understanding of the problem is that there are ^M characters at every carriage return that are not recognized.

: 2) I also tried to donwload the code file by file from the web site but I was unable to compile it.
: The ^M characters generate many warning and errors.

: Any help to get rid of this problem is wellcome.

Erase all the control-M :-))

If you are using an Unix system use vi and


or use dos2unix and/or unix2dos utility.

Hope this help
