that the source is character.
It was indeed necessary to only use 0x20 for padding when the source is
known to be character. One more check was to transfer a character(4)
variable to an integer(8) variable, there is no space padding. I don't
yet know whether this matches the behaviour of other compilers.
I don't currently have access to other compilers. I can have some test
cases performed on xlf and SunStudio but won't get any answers until
after Christmas. The answer will determine whether I have any more work
