Create container file
Create a new container file
and return a primary locator
to the top-level object.
FILE, NAME, TYPE, NDIM, DIM, LOC, STATUS )
FILE = CHARACTER
Container file name.
NAME = CHARACTER (
DAT__SZNAM ) (Given)
TYPE = CHARACTER
DAT__SZTYP ) (Given)
NDIM = INTEGER (Given)
Number of dimensions.
INTEGER( NDIM ) (Given)
Object dimensions (ignored if NDIM is zero).
LOC = CHARACTER
DAT__SZLOC ) (Returned)
STATUS = INTEGER (Given and Returned)
If a file extension is not specified, ‘.sdf’ is used. If type matches one of
the HDS primitive type names a primitive of that type is created, otherwise the object is
assumed to be a structure. If the top-level object is a structure array, loc will be associated with
the complete array, not the first cell. Thus, new components can only be created through
another locator which is explicitly associated with an individual cell (see DAT_CELL
