       protoize, unprotoize - create/remove ANSI prototypes from C code


       protoize [options] files ....
       unprotoize [options] files ....


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the protoize, and unprotoize commands.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux  distribution  (but  may  be  used  by  others),
       because  the  original program does not have a manual page.  Instead, it has documentation
       in the GNU Info format; see below.

       protoize is an optional part of GNU C.  You can use it to add  prototypes  to  a  program,
       thus  converting the program to ANSI C in one respect.  The companion program `unprotoize'
       does the reverse: it removes argument types from any prototypes that are found.

       When you run these programs, you must specify a  set  of  source  files  as  command  line


       These  programs  are  non-trivial  to operate, and it is neither possible nor desirable to
       properly summarize options in this  man  page.   Read  the  info  documentation  for  more


       The  programs  are documented fully by Gcc: The use and the internals of the GNU compiler,
       available via the Info system.  The documentation for protoize/unprotoize can be found  in
       the subsection "Invoking GCC", under "Running Protoize."
