Hello. I have recently started using Visual Fortran, after having programmed in Fortran on VAXes for over 20 years.
I am in the process of taking old data sets that were originally on 9 track tapes, then transferred to optical disks on the VAX. These data sets (actually, only one for now) have now been ftped to a laptop running Windows 98. My goal is to be able to perform the same type of analysis I was previously doing on the VAX.
So far, I have discovered that probably in the ftp process some extra characters were inserted into the data set, but I am able to program around that by doing a simple character read of the data. In fact, my program seems to be running correctly (YAY!) except for one thing. I know that where the Visual Fortran program is finding end of file is not the true end of file. The data should go to about 380 sec and it stops at 361 seconds. Also, when I first open the file to read, I do an inquire and it tells me there should be 132,422 blocks (of 512 bytes) but prgram execution ends at 131,881 blocks.
I have been trying to figure out if there is some way to override or force it to read beyond end of file. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
