8.1.14 Status_Equal_Character Procedure

The Status_Equal_Character 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 = S == C or
Logical = Equal(S, C)  

Input variable:

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

Output variable:

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

The Status_Equal_Character code listing contains additional documentation.
