In Fortran, one might read in data as integers of the
SELECTED_INT_KIND(2),

Not guaranteed to give a byte.

CHARACTER of length 1 is the best bet.

Not guaranteed to give a byte.

It has, for longer and on more systems than SELECTED_INT_KIND(2).

To be sure, some computers had only words. Most are long since gone.
The PC predominates.
