Formatting directives and routines for processing the data stream within the scope of an embedded tag are specified in the shell. In order to facilitate processing, a method permitting efficient access to formatting and procedural information is required. To satisfy this requirement, a function permitting direct referencing of constructs and associated information in a shell structure is provided.
