LONG(3F)                                                              LONG(3F)



NAME
       long, short - integer object conversion

SYNOPSIS
       integer*4 function long (int2)
       integer*2 int2

       integer*2 function short (int4)
       integer*4 int4

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  provide  conversion  between  short  and long integer
       objects.  Long is useful when constants are used in  calls  to  library
       routines  and the code is to be compiled with ``-i2''.  Short is useful
       in similar context when an otherwise long object must be  passed  as  a
       short integer.
