Argument Data Type Name of Subroutine REAL(KIND=8) SIC_R8 REAL(KIND=4) SIC_R4 INTEGER(KIND=4) SIC_I4 LOGICAL(KIND=4) SIC_L4 CHARACTER(LEN=*) SIC_CH, SIC_KE The calling syntax is the following CALL SIC_Name (LINE,IOPT,IARG,ARGUM,PRESENT,ERROR) Except for SIC_CH and SIC_KE CALL SIC_CH (LINE,IOPT,IARG,ARGUM,LARG,PRESENT,ERROR) CALL SIC_KE (LINE,IOPT,IARG,ARGUM,LARG,PRESENT,ERROR)
In addition there are other functions related to the arguments:
INTEGER FUNCTION SIC_NARG(IOPT)
returns the number of arguments present for option IOPT.
LOGICAL FUNCTION SIC_PRESENT(IOPT,IARG)
returns a logical value indicating the presence of the IARG-th argument of the IOPT-th option.
search for NAME in the vocabulary VOCAB, and returns the corresponding pointer IVOC in the vocabulary and corresponding keyword FULL = VOCAB(IVOC) if NAME is a non-ambiguous abbreviation of FULL.
INTEGER FUNCTION SIC_LEN(IOPT,IARG)
returns the total length of the IARG-th argument of the IOPT-th option. Returns 0 if SIC_PRESENT(IOPT,IARG)=.FALSE.
INTEGER FUNCTION SIC_START(IOPT,IARG)
returns a pointer to the address of the argument in the character string. Returns 0 if SIC_PRESENT(IOPT,IARG)=.FALSE.. This routine can be used with SIC_LEN for special processing of arguments, such as sexagesimal decoding.
This subroutine can be used for special processing of text with a syntax similar to command lines, i.e. text in which the delimiters are single spaces, strings being included between double quotes. Provided it is called with the text restricted to the current delimiter position LINE(NEXT:), it returns the position of the next delimiter NEXT (space, skipping strings), the character string included between these delimiters, ARGUM and its length LARG. This string may further be decoded as double precision value using routine SIC_MATH or SIC_SEXA, logical value using routine SIC_LOGICAL, or used as character constant.
