it will fail on a 64 bit build  as fhandle is hard coded at 32 bit.....

It did not work at all.  Suggestions to make it 32 and 64 bit.  But I just tested in 32 and 64 bit and it appears to work on both.

Thanks, @JohnNichols. I submitted a bug report, DOC-10919.

I declared fhandle as a 64bit INTEGER, too, to eliminate that warning message. That message might just confuse a novice.

John, there is an integer kind called HANDLE specified in multiple of the Windows modules (e.g.kernel32).

  integer(HANDLE) :: fhandle

The latest sign on is a nightmare, I will have to increase my self medication of Diet Dr Pepper to cope with the stress.  Find a code in an email program and then send a code to a phone, and then find the phone your daughter used all night to play games and she says, sorry Dad, it is dead.  Charge phone, code has expired, start again, actually read the email account inbox, as I never use this account except as the logon for Intel and on the phone when it is charged and this started yesterday morning, get a Microsoft code, even in my Sunday - o God is it Sunday, make the pain stop, reach for the can it is empty, traverse the house to the frig, frig is empty, find the slab of cans in the boot and carry to the frig, thankfully it was freezing last night so I have a cold tinnie.   Wonder what Microsoft has to do with Intel beside the obvious, remember Moore's law of Dr Diet Pepper, the cans will run out at midnight. 

Get a nice email from @Barbara_P_Intel  and chuckle.  I wonder what poor small cubicle in the world, Karen lives in.  I cannot send Karen an email, so could you say thank you.  

Thank the Norse gods for Jim and then end.  



have to work out how EXCEL uses t Stat in their Linear Regression analysis.  Has to be code somewhere.

Typo fixed in the next release of the DGR (Developer Guide and Reference). It'll be available later this spring.
