STAT(3F)                                                              STAT(3F)



NAME
       stat, lstat, fstat - get file status

SYNOPSIS
       integer function stat (name, statb)
       character*(*) name
       integer statb(12)

       integer function lstat (name, statb)
       character*(*) name
       integer statb(12)

       integer function fstat (lunit, statb)
       integer statb(12)

DESCRIPTION
       These  routines  return  detailed  information  about a file.  Stat and
       lstat return information about file  name;  fstat  returns  information
       about  the  file associated with fortran logical unit lunit.  The order
       and meaning of the information returned in array statb is as  described
       for  the  structure  stat  under stat(2).  The ``spare'' values are not
       included.

       The value of either function will be zero if successful; an error  code
       otherwise.
