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.
