%> WRAPIT -h

------------------------ Linux Compilers ---------------------------
The default linux fortran compiler is the GNU gfortran compiler. If
your system has one of the supported linux fortran compilers you must
specify which one you want to use by the appropriate command line
option, otherwise the gfortran compiler will be used.
The supported linux fortran compilers are the Portland Group
(pgf90), the Lahey/Fujitsu (lf95), and the g95 compiler (g95),
and the Intel compiler (ifc/ifort).
OPTION: -pg to specify the Portland Group compiler.
OPTION: -lf to specify the Lahey/Fujitsu compiler.
OPTION: -in to specify the Intel compiler.
OPTION: -g95 to specify the g95 compiler.
OPTION: -gf to specify the gfortran compiler.
OPTION: -g77 to specify the old g77 compiler.

In one of my Fortran 90 codes on which I use WRAPIT, gfortran consistently chokes on the 'backspace' command, by giving me an "unattached unit" error. I never had that problem before on other architectures when WRAPIT allowed me to use other compilers. Fortunately for me, I see a way that I can rework my Fortran code to avoid needing to use 'backspace' (and it should make my code marginally more efficient anyway), because I suspect this is a bug in gfortran (I did an 'inquire' right before the 'backspace' and everything checked out okay... I'm completely stumped why I'm getting the "unattached unit" error).
