  and ERRMSG is set to a descriptive error message.

              procedure or function. PATHNAME must end in '.pro'.
              The directory containing the file must be readable and
              it must be possible to change to that directory as a
              working directory using CD.

Keywords



  ERROR - upon return, a scalar integer giving status of
          compilation, either 0 for success or non-zero for failure.
  ERRMSG - upon return, a scalar string giving a descriptive error
            message.
  PRO_NAME - upon return, the name of the procedure, with path name
              and '.pro' suffix removed.
