Subject:   End of file with cards4 statement

Is there a way to detect the end of file while using a cards4 statement? There is no infile statement to put an end= option. I need to use a cards4 because my data has embedded semi-colons.

I guess I could use a dummy stopper-records, like all 9's or something like that. But I was looking for something a little more elegant.
