Passes the command COMMAND to a shell (see
system(3)). If argument STATUS is present, it contains the value returned by
system(3), which is presumably 0 if the shell command succeeded. Note that which shell is used to invoke the command is system-dependent and environment-dependent.
This intrinsic is provided in both subroutine and function forms; however, only one form can be used in any given program unit.
Note that the
system function need not be thread-safe. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure that
system is not called concurrently.
|COMMAND||Shall be of default
|STATUS||(Optional) Shall be of default
EXECUTE_COMMAND_LINE, which is part of the Fortran 2008 standard and should considered in new code for future portability.
