The C is not required in column 6 for fixed format.
There's a _lot_ of code out there in fixed format that doesn't have the
C in column 6.

I want to see what the group thinks of this idea...
Instead of having to code /free and /end-free, to drop into free form
and back out again, why not just let the compiler make the decision, on
a line-by-line basis, depending on the presence of the "C" in the column
(for C-specs)? If the "C" is there, treat the line as fixed format. If
there is a blank in that column, then we are in /free format.
a pre compiler could do this. If the market wanted the feature a 3rd
party would have provided it. ( just a way to phrase the issue )
