string, strlowcase, strupcase


The Fortran90 module misc_utils contains three functions to create or manipulate character strings.

Location in HEALPix directory tree: src/f90/mod/misc_utils.F90 


ARGUMENTS

name & dimensionality kind in/out description
       
number LGT/ I4B/ SP/ DP IN number or boolean flag to be turned into a character string.
instring CHR IN arbitrary character string.
outstring CHR -- output character string.
format OPTIONAL CHR IN character string describing Fortran format of output.

FUNCTIONS:
outstring = string(number [,format])

    returns in outstring its argument number converted to a character string. If format is provided it is used to format the output, if not, the fortran default format matching number's type is used.  


outstring = strlowcase(instring)

    returns in outstring its argument instring converted to lowercase. ASCII characters in the [A-Z] range are mapped to [a-z], while all others remain unchanged.  


outstring = strupcase(instring)

    returns in outstring its argument instring converted to uppercase. ASCII characters in the [a-z] range are mapped to [A-Z], while all others remain unchanged.  



EXAMPLE:

use misc_utils
character(len=24) :: s1
s1 = string(123,'(i5.5)')
print*, trim(s1)
print*,trim(strupcase('*aBcD-123'))
print*,trim(strlowcase('*aBcD-123'))
Will printout 00123, *ABCD-123 and *abcd-123.
