Whenever parameters serve as flags, i.e. can only take a limited number
of values, symbolic names have been defined (e.g. F_IO_MODE) in order to
hide the explicit value from the application. These definitions are stored
in a central Midas directory (logical name MID_INCLUDE).
To obtain these definitions use: #include
<midas_def.h> for C-routines.
In FORTRAN code use: INCLUDE MID_INCLUDE:ST_DEF.INC
and INCLUDE MID_INCLUDE:ST_DAT.INC to get the necessary translations. The INCLUDE statement is not in standard FORTRAN 77 but it will be processed via the ESO utility esoext, cf. chapter .
