I'd like to report that fortran so files can be accessed
from a ncl script with the Mac version.
I find error messages useful. Many thanks.

BTW, I get a bus error when I try to save a character array.
A error occurs even with one dimensional array and even
a single character.

Strings can be saved but control of length will be messy.
I am trying to save a sequential file with a character header.

A error also occurs with 4.2.0.a024 IRIX.
