Generic Prototype

dt_alloc_string(dt_String) => dt_Handle

FORTRAN Prototype

Allocates a new string object. The contents of the object is identical to 'string'. The object contains a copy of 'string', so the application can discard the original string after calling this function. Note that 'string' may be the invalid string. The object will be successfully allocated and will contain the invalid string.

Return Value

Returns the handle of a new string object.
