Hi,

I saw a strange Buildin function in PLI.

This is the statement for finding the Dimension of an array.
DIMENSION(Array_name,DIMENSION)

what would be the result for the statement above??

And, what would be the result if we give DIMENSION(Array_name)??

Thanks,
Sundar.

What did you find out when you reviewed the Language Reference manual, specifically the section on built in functions?

The language is not very clear in explaining this. Could anyone please explain the question raised by Sundar.
