2. The language provides a portable facility to determine the needed

If this actually works, I'd be keen to know exactly how.
Ah. Sorry, I got the specifier name wrong doing it from memory. It is
IOLENGTH instead of RECL. And that's a whole different syntax in
inquire. Since there is a recl in the wrong syntax version, that
probably mislead you. For iolength,
1. You do *NOT* use it on a file. You specify the iolength specifier
instead of a unit number - not in addition to one.
2. You need an iolist. The result will be the recl value that is
appropriate for that iolist.
