Create a temporary C string and import a FORTRAN string into it including trailing blanks


Create a temporary C string, import a FORTRAN string into it, retaining trailing blanks and return a pointer to this C string. The length of the C string that is created is just long enough to hold the FORTRAN string (including any trailing blanks), plus the null terminator.


pointer = cnfCreib( source_f, source_len )


const char source_f (Given)
A pointer to the input FORTRAN string
int source_len (Given)
The length of the input FORTRAN string

Returned Value

char cnfCreib
A pointer to the temporary storage location


If the routine could not create the space, then it returns a null pointer.
