No, I did not intend to post the program to this mailing
list. I did not intend to write an interpretation request.
The answers to interpretation requests 000024 and 000027
against the Fortran 95 standard answered any questions I
might have had about what the output of the program should
I have known for about a decade that the implementation I
help support does not implement nonadvancing i/o as
required by interpretations 000024 and 000027. I recently
started working on fixes for our implementation. After
about a day, I realized that the fixes would require much
more work than I had originally thought. I was curious how
other implementations handled some of the hard cases, which
resulted in my posting on comp.lang.fortran.
