Description: I believe SKIPSEPRS used to not error when it hit end of file.  There is this comment in its code': "Passes over non-separators (sic) to peek at the first non-separator on FILE.  Returns either last peeked character, or NIL if no non-seprs left in the file."  If, for example, I want to write my own LOAD function that does not count on atom STOP being in my file, it is convenient to use READ, EOFP, and a non-erroring SKIPSEPRS. '
If SKIPSEPRS gets an error on eof, it is becaue the device \PEEKBIN function is not honoring the noerror flg.  What device is the file on?'
