Provided here are binaries and source code from me working through Software Tools and Software Tools in Pascal, especially in Modula-2. The ratfor command is a static Linux, 32-bit binary, built from the toolstape.

Research Unix developed a more advanced version of the Ratfor translator in C, though Fortran has evolved sufficiently to make Ratfor unnecessary, if not incompatible. (There was also a version from Oz at Stanford.)

See Plan 9 from User Space for more advanced forms of these tools, though from Plan 9 not Unix. Also see this study in Haskell: http://www.crsr.net/Programming_Languages/SoftwareTools/. The C Programming Language uses many of these tools in a simplified form as developed under Unix.

All tools are 64-bit static builds from the Modula-2 source, except Linux/ratfor which is 32-bit from the tools tape on Kernighan's Princeton website. Also see my work, including primitives and explanation, on building Software Tools in Free Pascal.
