AMBER: [OT] A nab programming question

Sorry to post an off topic item, but since there is substantial
overlap of the amber and nab community....

I need to use some fortran functions in a (fairly large) project
written in nab. There is a lot of trig, and due to the diffences
in angle representation (degrees in nab, radians in fortran), I
decided to convert the fortran to nab. My problem is that the
fortran uses named common blocks to pass around global variables.
I have not been able to come up with a way to implement an
equivalent using nab. Has anyone done something similar to this
or does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks,

Bud Dodson
