  Description     : debhelper add-on to handle Fortran '.mod' files

 Modules were introduced in the 1990 revision of the Fortran standard. When the
 Fortran compiler processes a source file containing a module, it produces both
 an object file and a '.mod' file. The latter plays a role similar to header
 files in C, since it is needed when compiling other source files which make
 use of the module.
 .
 The '.mod' files are however platform dependent, and their format changes with
 the gfortran version
 .
 This package provides the dh_fortran_mod command, which simplifies th
 inclusion of '.mod' files in binary packages. First, it places the '.mod
 files in the correct platform- and gfortran-dependent location. Second, it
 adds the right dependency information on gfortran version(s).
 .
 Inclusion of dh_fortran_mod in dh sequence is also provided under the name
 'fortran_mod'.

 This package was originally developed by Sebastien Vilemont.
