[Rd] Fortran runtime error with package cts on CRAN/Mac

Thanks Prof Ripley. Here is what I meant for "submit a test". I can build and check R source packages for Windows at http://win-builder.r-project.org/, but I am not aware of a link for Mac. I thought this can be useful for those without access to Mac machines.

Well, as Writing R Extensions says, packages should do no Fortran I/O
at all. So please pass the binary value to your code from R.
You cannot expect to write out extreme values without some
representation error, and adjacent values cannot be read in again.
In any case, these values are essentially the same for all R
platforms, being mandated by IEC60559.

What does 'submit a test mean'? Any test you write can check the
value of Sys.info()["sysname"]: it is "Darwin" on Mac OS X.
Or R.version$platform, which will be something like
