Summary0037154: inconsistent RTE generation for reading input from an unopened file in mode ISO
DescriptionReading a number or a character from an unopened file either generate RTE 106 (Invalid numeric format) or RTE 6 (Invalid file handle) or RTE 103 (File not open), depending on whether it is `input` or any other file and whether it is a numeric or non-numeric destination variable.
Steps To Reproduce{$mode ISO}
program isoModeReadingNumbers(input, output);
    i: integer;

Run the program (possibly forcing that no FD are opened): ./isoModeReadingNumbers <&- >&-

This will emit a “Invalid numeric format” RTE, which is “sort of” wrong.
TagsNo tags attached.

Is it documented somewhere which RTE is expected?

no. (I can't find it, that is) unopened files can't be read so is undefined by definition.

Well, touché, the standards merely define _an_ error has to occur. However, in ISO 7185 appendix the errors “[…] file is undefined immediately prior to any use of […] read” (D.15) and “[…] end-of-file is true immediately prior to any use of […] read.” (D.16) are listed as _two_ _separate_ errors
This appendix is merely informative though.

Nevertheless, I think these error should rise first before a “Invalid numeric format” RTE is generated (D.54 [or D.56 for floats]).

An RTE 6 is issued now.
