> Is it illegal to make consecutive calls to io:fread?

no solution, but another data item:

removing the newline at the end of the file gives the following result:

X={error,fread}.  Y=eof.

fread() input without newline seems to give {error,fread}.
and fread() input with newline seems to always read until newline,
discarding extra terms.
