Bruce,

Yep, the column_label is restricted to 128 characters, which could 
be the limiting factor for many data files and is the limitation 
for the files I posted. 

What should be done??  text variables could be increased to 256
characters, but that might not be enough.  A column lable of 2048
would seem reasonable with 100+ columns (which is not out of the
question).  Maybe having multiple text variables, $column_label_01,
$column_label_02, etc.  I can't think of an easy solution that isn't
icky...

Ugh, Fortran.  It's really starting to be the main problem here.
