Regrettably, though, books are not proof but at best only supporting
evidence. Grinding through the standard is the only way to be sure.
Grogono also notes in section 7.1, "Sequential files," that:
"Some Pascal systems also insist that the standard file 'output' is
mentioned in the program heading even if the program contains no call
to write, so that there is a destination for error messages."
