x/ zvparmd

call xvparmd(name, value, count, def, maxcnt)
status = zvparmd(name, value, count, def, maxcnt, length);

Double-precision version of x/ zvparm.

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

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