Fortran Carriage Control in RMS Files?

» close window

The Question is:

We have been running Dec Fortran 7.3-190-44A17 for some time. Recently, we
 noticed that control information in the FORMAT ('+' and '$') are being
 displayed as ASCII '+' and '$' in the output file. What can cause this?

The Answer is :

The answer will require details of how the file was opened (specifically the
"CARRIAGECONTROL" attribute and the FORMAT and WRITE statements used to
write the output.
Other factors that may influence the behaviour of control characters are:
1) The file attributes may have been changed. See DIRECTORY/FULL.
2) How the file is displayed? EDIT? TYPE? PRINT? Other?
3) Terminal characteristics
