PARUSE

Syntax PARUSE (name)
Location Toolkit II, THOR XVI

PARUSE is a companion function to PARTYP. PARUSE also expects only one parameter - the name of the parameter from the definition line to be looked at. PARUSE will then return one of the following values depending on the actual parameter passed:

PARUSE Meaning
0 An unset variable has been passed.
2 A variable (or value) has been passed.
3 An array has been passed.

NOTE 1

The Toolkit II Manual gives incorrect values.

NOTE 2

There is a difference in the way that PARUSE will report an omitted parameter, depending on whether you implicitly omit the parameter or explicitly omit it - see Note 1 relating to PARTYP. Under current versions of Qliberator a program, PARUSE will always return 2 whether the parameter is implicitly or explicitly omitted.

NOTE 3

TURBO and SuperCHARGE cannot compile programs which use PARUSE.
