8.1.7 Character_Equal_Status Procedure

The Character_Equal_Status procedure returns a logical value which is true when the status variable is the same state specified by the input character string, used as a selector flag (see Set_Status procedure for a list of valid flags). It has an operator (== or .eq.) interface.

Calling syntax:

Logical = C == SS or
Logical = Equal(C, SS)  

Input variable:

 C  The selector flag string to be compared.
 SS  The status variable to be compared.

Output variable:

 Equal  True iff the status variable and the selector flag string match.

The Character_Equal_Status code listing contains additional documentation.
