The routine returns a “reference name”
for an HDS object whose locator
is supplied. This name identifies the object uniquely by including
both the name of the container file and the “path name” which locates the object within this file. If a
locator to a cell or a slice is supplied, then subscript information will also be included. Appropriate
syntax is used to represent file names which do not have the standard ‘.sdf’ file extension.
CALL DAT_REF( LOC, REF, LREF, STATUS )
LOC = CHARACTER
DAT__SZLOC ) (Given)
Locator to the HDS object.
REF = CHARACTER
The object’s reference name.
LREF = INTEGER (Returned)
Number of significant
characters in the reference name.
STATUS = INTEGER (Given and Returned)
The global status.
