8.1.8 Character_Not_Equal_Status Procedure

The Character_Not_Equal_Status procedure returns a logical value which is true when the status variable is not equal to the 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 .ne.) interface.

Calling syntax:

Logical = C /= SS or
Logical = Not_Equal(C, SS)  

Input variable:

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

Output variable:

 Not_Equal  True iff the two status variables have different states.

The Character_Not_Equal_Status code listing contains additional documentation.
