I haven't looked at CFORTRAN for a while, but from what i recall it
provides you with a way of interfacing FORTRAN and C provided you know
the types of all arguments passed ... our problem is that we are trying to
write a FORTRAN function that can take either a numerical type or a
string, and i don't think it covers this
