SETFIL(III)                  10/29/73                 SETFIL(III)



NAME
     setfil - specify Fortran file name

SYNOPSIS
     call setfil ( unit, hollerith-string )

DESCRIPTION
     Setfil  provides a primitive way to associate an integer I/O
     unit number with a file named by the hollerith-string.   The
     end  of  the  file name is indicated by a blank.  Subsequent
     I/O on this unit number will refer to the file whose name is
     specified by the string.

     Setfil should be called only before any I/O has been done on
     the unit, or just after doing a rewind or  endfile.   It  is
     ineffective for unit numbers 5 and 6.

SEE ALSO
     fc(I)

BUGS
     The exclusion of units 5 and 6 is unwarranted.
