      Generate names or text strings with embedded numbers.


Calling Sequence

      name = numname(pat, i, [j, k])


      pat = pattern of text string. in
      i = number to substitute for # in pat. in
      j = number to substitute for $ in pat. in
      k = number to substitute for % in pat. in

Keyword Parameters


        DIGITS=d number of digits to force in name (def=none).
          d can be an array giving the number of digits for
          each of i, j, and k (else d will apply to all).


      name = resulting text string. out

Common Blocks


      Notes: Ex1: pat = 'file#.txt', i=7, name='file7.txt'
          Ex2: pat = 'A#B$C%D', i=1, j=2, k=3, name='A1B2C3D'
          Ex3: pat='A#B', i=5, DIGITS=4, name='A0005B'.
          If j and k are not given then $ and % are not changed
          in pat if they occur.
          Inverse of namenum, see namenum.
