212H Of course you don't do string processing in FORTRAN. It's for problems
which you can solve by representing everything as homogeneous coordinates
and then computing the result by one giant matrix multiplication.

(wc helps a lot to construct proper hollerith constants.
 To be typical all characters would have to be capital letters or digits
 encoded in EBCDIC.)

Have a nice day :)
