You know I said the 'structure constructor' % stuff was a powerful feature.
Well I guess it is but the use of it in the code I am looking at leaves the source code almost unreadable!
One line of 'old' FORTRAN format being taken up by - I am not joking - 5 lines of overflow coding in some instances.
I think I am going to have to write a code to decode the %'s - which is not such a bad idea - move all the % calls in one routine and just return a sensible variable!
Onward and upward ;-)
