BUILDING . AR| OK, so it's stream-crlf. I was never much of an ITS user, and never used FORTRAN there. I don't think ITS had file attributes at the filesystem level, so we don't have to worry about that level of complication.
If a leading space (1H ) gets the data read correctly, the RTL thinks a FORTRAN file is expected by the user code, and is turning the <data>crlf into <sp>data. This behavior is is either explicit (an OPEN argument), or implicit (based on file name, unit number, or device type). Is the file extension .DAT? that may trigger this. Is there an OPEN statement for that file? If so, what does it include? If not, how is it connected to which LUN, and what's its full name (as seen by a UUO)? What fortran compiler/runtime? DEC's F40? FORTRAN-10? Something else? Later versions of F40 supported open (some earlier versions had CALL OPEN(same args)). You need the reference manual for whichever compiler/RTL you're using. For FORTRAN-10, look for aa-n383b-tk ("TOPS-10/TOPS-20 FORTRAN Language Reference Manual") There is a bitsavers URL for that, but it's broken and seems broken on the mirrors too: http://bitsavers.org/pdf/dec/pdp10/TOPS10_softwareNotebooks/vol11/AA-N383B-TK_fortLangMan.pdf
