to re-create this problem:

create a file AAA.JUN with one line, three characters AAA
create a file BBB.JUN with one line, three characters BBB

Then, in a DOS window: COPY *.JUN ALL.ALL
then read the ALL.ALL file using the LINEIN function.

(I was using Regina 3.5, Windows/XP Pro)

It will read three records:
AAA
BBB
x

where the x is a right arrow ('1a'x) which is the EOF character.

This also fails on the older Regina versions as well.

This type of end-of-file should be recognized by Regina.
