INFO-FUNCTION (op-code 4)

This routine returns a variety of information about the open indexed file f, depending on the value of mode. The information is returned in the area pointed to by result. Most of the modes return one or more numeric values. These values are represented in result as fixed size fields with the numbers represented as strings. When more than one value is returned in result, the values are separated by commas.

The filesys.def COPY file contains layouts for each kind of information that can be retrieved with this routine.

The INFO routine has three parameters, f, mode, and result.

Note: Versions of INFO prior to the version used by the 3.2 runtime returned only one digit for the number of segments in the key.
