Returns the ``current'' length of the string LINE, that is the position of the last significant character. It thus allows to ignore trailing blanks. It is obsolescent, as the Fortran-90 intrinsic LEN_TRIM provides the same functionality.
INTEGER FUNCTION SIC_GETVM(N32,ADDR)
SIC_GETVM allocates virtual memory for N32 32-bit words, and returns the allocated address space into the KIND=ADDRESS_LENGTH variable ADDR. SIC_GETVM is set to 1 in case of success, to other values otherwise.
FREE_VM can be used to free the corresponding adress space when no longer needed.
SIC_GETVM and FREE_VM use is being deprecated, as the ALLOCATE/DEALLOCATE mechanism of Fortran-90 offers an equivalent functionality.
