### NDF_HPURG

Delete a range of records from an NDF history component

#### Description:

The routine deletes a specified range of records from an NDF history component. The remaining records are re-numbered starting from 1.

#### Invocation

CALL NDF_HPURG( INDF, IREC1, IREC2, STATUS )

#### Arguments

NDF identifier.
##### IREC1 = INTEGER (Given)
Number of the first history record to be deleted.
##### IREC2 = INTEGER (Given)
Number of the last history record to be deleted.
##### STATUS = INTEGER (Given and Returned)
The global status.

#### Notes:

• This routine is provided primarily to allow a lengthy NDF history to be truncated in order to save space. To avoid deceiving subsequent readers, it is normally advisable not to delete arbitrary sections of an NDF’s history, but to delete only the earliest part (by setting IREC1 to 1).

• The IREC1 and IREC2 arguments must both identify valid history records which are actually present. Their values may be interchanged without affecting the behaviour of this routine.
