8.1.16 Status_Not_Equal_Character Procedure

The Status_Not_Equal_Character 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 = S /= C or
Logical = Not_Equal(S, C)  

Input variable:

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

Output variable:

 Not_Equal  True iff the two status variables have different states.

The Status_Not_Equal_Character code listing contains additional documentation.
