Or if you don't want to go to the trouble of installing f2c the following is
from the f2c documentation:

You may exercise f2c by sending
a message whose first line is "execute f2c" and whose remaining
lines are the Fortran 77 source that you wish to have converted.
Return mail brings you the resulting C, with f2c's error
messages between #ifdef uNdEfInEd and #endif at the end.

This works well if your fortran is solid (i.e. - you're not in debugging mode).
