Read a primitive (access type specified by a parameter).
CALL DAT_GET( LOC, TYPE, NDIM, DIM, VALUE, STATUS )
LOC = CHARACTER
DAT__SZLOC ) (Given)
TYPE = CHARACTER
DAT__SZTYP ) (Given)
NDIM = INTEGER (Given)
DIM = INTEGER( NDIM ) (Given)
VALUE = ?(
), ... )
STATUS = INTEGER (Given and Returned)
The global status.
When reading character strings the normal Fortran 77 rules for character assignment are
followed, ie. if the string length of the primitive object is less than that of the value array, each
string is padded to the right with blanks; if greater, the strings are truncated from the right.
