Forms for Stream READ Statements

The forms for stream READ statements take the same forms as sequential READ statements. A POS specifier may be present to specify at what file position the READ will start.

You can impose a record structure on a formatted, sequential stream by using a new-line character as a record terminator (see intrinsic function NEW_LINE). There is no record structure in an unformatted, sequential stream.
