Preliminary remarks

This manual consists of several parts:


In this manual examples are in monotype face and strings to be input by the user are underlined. In the index the page where a routine is defined is in bold, page numbers where a routine is referenced are in normal type.

This manual flags output parameters in subroutine calls, i.e. parameters which return values to the caller, by an asterisk "*" following the argument's name. If the input value of such a parameter is also significant this is marked by prefixing a second asterisk. A parameter which is a link is marked by an exclamation mark "!".

The types of variables follow from the Fortran default typing convention, except that variables beginning with the letters " ch" are of type CHARACTER.

The Fortran labelled COMMON /\QUEST/IQUEST(100) serves for communication between the Zebra system and the user, and also as scratch area in Zebra.
