Description

PNAM
(an input constant or variable of type CHARACTER) specifies the name of the parameter to be set. The name must appear as the first three characters of the string. Other characters may be used to document the use of the parameter being set; for example, instead of just ´CRB´, one can use ´CRB - CHARACTER REPRESENTING BREAK´.
CVAL
(an input constant or variable of type CHARACTER) is the value to be assigned to the internal parameter specified by PNAM.

The C-binding argument descriptions are the same as the FORTRAN argument descriptions.
