5 Input of Commands, shareable 6 Output of messages, shareable 50 to 99 Used by SIC_GETLUNUnits 5 and 6 are respectively accessed via usual READ and WRITE instructions.
Units 5 and 6 are respectively accessed via usual READ and WRITE instructions. If you wish to be able to reassign the input or/and output of your program to a file, you should also make your input and output in the same way (or use the SIC_WPR, SIC_WPRN routine). If you mix READ(5,format) and WRITE(6,format) instructions with PRINT, READ(*,format) or WRITE(*,format) instructions, you might experience some problem. Mixing with C output (printf routine for example) may yield to disordered output because of buffering. Use of routine GAGOUT , or of the messaging facility, is recommended to printout information.
The monitor uses additional logical units for the LOG file, for opening temporary files and for active procedures. These units are taken in the range 50 to 99. Units 50 to 99 are assumed to be available for the routine SIC_GETLUN . This subroutine returns the next available logical unit in this range, and keeps track of their usage. Conflict may occur if the user directly opens a file under a unit in this range without allocating the unit through a call to SIC_GETLUN. Other units are never used by SIC and other GILDAS programs.
