I don't see why we should or how doing so would add value
to the standard. We don't for I/O, and for many of the same reasons.
The universe of possibilities is just too large to go exploring.
What is a command? In Fortran, it's a processor-dependent s-d-c.
What sort of command errors can occur? I don't know,
and without being processor-specific, neither do you.
Do commands even return error codes? If so, what do they mean?
This is not only PD, it's command-specific. Shall we write
a specific entry for "Input garbled near line 1" ?
What is there to standardize?
