Abstract

Disclosed is a tool to facilitate the use of the FORTRAN Memory Management service routines to access elements in 'C' data structures. A set of macro definitions is defined for each 'C' structure. These macros provide the offset and size of each element in the structure (for accessing data) and the size of the structure (for memory allocation).
