One of my favorites is
It isn't quite a perfect fit for comp.lang.fortran, but not far off. It
is spot on for some of the other help I end up doing.

Altho I suppose I should catch up to the times and have done the three
as "in the Standard" from the git-go given the present status... :)
Also, in retrospect, probably could/should(?) have noted that in direct
access padding another compounding/confounding problem can be that the
padding bytes are undefined so may be anything which doesn't necessarily
help much in deciphering an unknown file structure...

You need to know
1. what values were written out
2. what kind of WRITE statement(s) was used.
When you have found that out, and checked out the binary file,
then if you still have questions, you need to post the procedure(s)
that generated the binary file.
