HELP SECTION

ASDMFILE
Type:  Adverb  (string*64 array of 2)
Use:   The concatenation of ASDMFILE(1) and ASDMFILE(2) with
       any trailing blanks in ASDMFILE(1) omitted gives the full
       path name to the top directory of the ASDM/BDF data set.

       The code will also manage when ASDMFILE(1) begins with either
       '$xxxx/' or 'xxxx:' where xxxx is a logical (environment)
       variable.  The filename sent to OBIT will be the translation of
       $xxxx followed by a '/' followed by an remaining non-blank
       characters in ASDMFILE(1) followed by ASDMFILE(2).  Thus, if
       the environment variables
          export LSJ=/lustre/lsjouwer/
          export LSJ7=/lustre/lsjouwer/TCAL0007/
       then
          ASDMFILE = '$LSJ/TCAL007/', 'longstuff
          ASDMFILE = 'LSJ:TCAL007/', 'longstuff
          ASDMFILE = '$LSJ7', 'longstuff
          ASDMFILE = 'LSJ7:', 'longstuff
          ASDMFILE = '$LSJ7/longstuff
          ASDMFILE = 'LSJ7:longstuff
       will all call OBIT with file name
          /lustre/lsjouwer/TCAL0007/longstuff
       since the two verbs below know that ASDMF(1)=ASDMF(2) is not
       what you really mean.  Note that the $ and the colon are
       required and the / must appear with the $ when ASDMF(1) has
       more charactrs than just the logical name.
Null value:
       ' ' => failure
