Hello, I am having trouble figuring out how to use Control Characters in Fortran. My professor skipped over that chapter back in my Computational Tools 1 course and I am trying to figure out how to use them. I am currently compiling my programs in the GNU Fortran compiler if that helps any. I know through reading "Fortran 95/2003 for Scientists and Engineers" that the table for Control Characters looks like this (below).

___________________________________________________

Control Character | Action
___________________________________________________

1.......................|....Skip to new page
Blank..................|....Single spacing
0.......................|.....Double Spacing
+.......................|....No spacing (print over previous line)
___________________________________________________

I'm interested in knowing how to use the "+" for printing over a previous line. A simple example would help a lot.

Thank you,

Glenn
