x/ zviparmd

call xviparmd(name, value, count, def, maxcnt)
status = zviparmd(name, value, count, def, maxcnt, length);

Interactive version of x/ zvparmd.

This routine is exactly like x/ zviparm, except that if the interactive parameter being returned is REAL, the VALUE parameter is returned in double precision format. x/ zviparm returns the value in single precision. Although VALUE supports integers and strings as well, x/ zviparmd should generally be used only for double-precision numbers. x/ zviparm should be used for integers and strings.

This routine replaces the functionality of the R8FLAG parameter that was previously on xviparm.
