I'm not so sure. It may be a case of ensuring the carriage is at the left margin -- remember that Fortran carriage control would insert a line feed at the start of the record (if the record carriage control character is a space) but not a carriage return; that happens at end of record. So if some previous operation left the carriage at some other spot on the page, you'd end up with weird looking output. The / supplies <lf><cr> to ensure all is clean. paul _______________________________________________ Simh mailing list Simh@trailing-edge.com http://mailman.trailing-edge.com/mailman/listinfo/simh
