If you can't (or don't want to) modify the fortran binaries, I think you should
use Expect as an interface with these binaries.
Expect is made for this purpose.

You can use Expect from C or C++, so if you really want to use C,C++ and
KDevelop, you can do it.

But my advice would be to use tcl/tk because Expect was made as a tcl extension
so Expect is easier to use with tcl/tk.

Hope this helps,
