Default ValueNone. This is a read-only parameter.
This parameter returns the pointer which defines the base address for arrays in your application used to reference FMS managed memory. The first step is to declare the following arrays in your application:
POINTER (CMD_PTR, CMD) POINTER (RMD_PTR, RMD) POINTER (IMD_PTR, IMD) COMPLEX*16 CMD(0:1) REAL*8 RMD(0:1) INTEGER IMD(0:1)At this point the arrays IMD, RMD and CMD exist in your application, but they start at address zero.
The next step is to map these arrays directly to FMS managed memory using the following calls:
CALL FMSIGT ('MEMPTR', CMD_PTR) CALL FMSIGT ('MEMPTR', RMD_PTR) CALL FMSIGT ('MEMPTR', IMD_PTR)The arrays IMD, RMD and CMD now share the same addresses with the FMS managed memory. Note that all 3 arrays share the same address space.
Before you can use the memory allocated by FMS, you must allocate it from the FMS memory pool. The routines FMSIMG, FMSRMG, FMSCMG perform that task. When the memory is no longer required, you may return it to the pool by calling FMSIMR, FMSRMR, FMSCMR.
