I am having trouble sending character strings to Fortran. Even in a
simple program, I only receive gibberish. Something like this

test <- function() .Fortran("test",word="time")

(also tried using as.character()), with

	subroutine test(word)
	character*8 word

Is there a problem or am I missing something? dotcode.c seems to
indicate that it should work. Jim
