110384     RMS-11 FORTRAN Callable Subroutines  Version: 1, December
Submitted by: Digital Equipment Corporation
Operating System: RSX-11M V3.1  Source Language: "IND", FORTRAN
IV-PLUS, MACRO-11  Memory Required: Variable, depends on modules used.
Keywords: FORTRAN, File Management
Abstract: The RMS-11 FORTRAN Callable Subroutines permit RSX-11M
applications tasks to use the RMS-11 File and Record
Processing routines to create and access RMS-11
sequential and relative files as well as RMS-11K indexed
files.  The subroutines operate as the interface between
the user task and the RMS-11 MACRO calls, providing
access to these from a FORTRAN program.  Additional
subroutines are provided to allow the user to access and
modify the fields of File Access Blocks, Record Access
Blocks, Name Blocks, and Extended Attribute Blocks.  The
FORTRAN IV PLUS user has the benefit of an include file
defining RMS values for control block fields and error
messages. The control blocks are built with the help of
an RSX-11M indirect command file which, with long or
short dialogue, guides the user through the allocation
of RMS-11 facilities.
A special OPEN by FILE-ID routine is provided for fast
access to files in the Real-Time environment.  Special
subroutines are also provided to aid in the processing
of locked files or buckets.
Notes: Designed to be used with FORTRAN IV-PLUS.  Can be used
with FORTRAN IV subject to exclusion of FORTRAN IV-PLUS
features.  RMS-11K is optional.
Restrictions: Uses indirect command file processor features in 11M
V3.1 and later.
