; dat/dat 16-Sep-96 AT 09:52:24 doc007.dat
1 2 22.000 142.00
2 2 101.00 202.00
3 2 102.00 303.33
11 2 111.00 712.00
100 2 112.00 613.00


The following SPIDER procedure:

UD FIND [key],[r1],[r2]
doc002
1,102

VM echo ' ' r1: {****[r1]} r2: {%f8.2%[r2]}

Will give the following output:
 
R1: 102 R2: 303.00

NOTES

  1. When the end of the file is reached without finding the desired value the returned 'key' value is zero.

  2. IMPORTANT: only 12 document files may be accessed concurrently with 'UD IC' or 'UD FIND'. Once the limit is reached one of the current files must be cleared by a 'UD ICE' or 'UD FIND E' command. An attempt to apply 'UD FIND' to a 13'th document file before execution of a 'UD FIND E ' command to free the area reserved for data from an existing file will result in an error message.]
