The Initialize_Character procedure allocates and initializes a character scalar or array variable.
|call Initialize (C, [dim1, ..., dimn,] status)|
|C||A character scalar variable or a pointer to an unallocated character array variable.|
|dim1, ..., dimn||Extents of the dimensions for the array C. Only as many dimensions as are needed should be entered.|
|C||The C variable has been allocated (if it is an array) and initialized to initialize_character_flag.|
|status||If present, the status variable is set to either 'Memory Error' or 'Success' depending on program execution. If not present, the procedure aborts if unsuccessful when the DEBUG_LEVEL is set high enough.|
The Initialize_Character code listing contains additional documentation.
