8.7.2 Reading and Writing Non-Regular Files

As in the case of Text_IO, when a non-regular file is read, it is assumed that the file contains no page marks (any form characters are treated as data characters), and End_Of_Page always returns False. Similarly, the end of file indication is not sticky, so it is possible to read beyond an end of file.
