For fixed block length sequential media where
the physical block size cannot be equal to or
an integral multiple of the standard FITS logical record length,
a logical record of fewer than 23040 bits (2880 8-bit bytes) immediately
following the end of the primary header,
data, or an extension
should be treated as an end-of-file. Otherwise, individual
FITS files should be terminated by a delimiter appropriate
to the medium, analogous to the tape end-of-file mark.
If more than one FITS file appears on a
physical structure, the appropriate end-of-file indicator
should immediately precede the start of the primary
headers of all files after the first.
