    Writing a Form Feed in a Sequential file using

    Open file:NEW
    Use file Write #
    Close file

    produces a Form-Feed and a Line-Feed (ASCII 12 + ASCII 10)
    If I use a

    Write *12

    instead, it issues a Form-Feed only as expected.

    I suspect GT.M translates the '#' sign to FF+LF
    Is this a feature or can it be customized to send just a FF (12) only ? Maybe adding asome parameter to the Open or Use command ?
