Good lord! Maybe it's coz you use a Mac....?? :o)

The Fortran news group has regular questions about this exact same
thing. As David's answer points out, the use of iw.w formatting is oh so


p.s. F95 has a new formatting option, i0, which would print out 1 as
"1", 10 as "10" etc. i.e. the leading blanks removed. Maybe this should
go on a future IDL feature request list....? :o)
