Ah. Thanks. On VMS, it's all handled within
RMS, so the problem doesn't arise.

So, "ASA" in this context is like "ISO" for
a CD-ROM image? (That is, frequently
inappropriate, but commonly (mis-) used?)

I don't see the connection? Everyone should agree by now on the Fortran carriage control characters.

ASA and ISO are/were standards organizations.
"ASA" means more than a Fortran carriage
control standard, just as "ISO" means more
than a CD-ROM file system standard.

"ASA" is the abbreviation of the American
Standards Association, a former name for the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI),
which is believed to have sanctioned these
control characters.
