In file open.f90:1
Error: Syntax error in OPEN statement at (1)
The compiler should recognize the string as the FILE argument to the open statement.
hmm, IFC rejects this also:
Error 24 at (1:pr15322.f90) : syntax error
compilation aborted for pr15322.f90 (code 1)
Seems like Meissner's book had wrong code. Looking at the standard, I confirm
that this should be a syntax error. Closing.
