8.158 LSTAT — Get file status

Description:
LSTAT is identical to STAT, except that if path is a symbolic link, then the link itself is statted, not the file that it refers to.

The elements in VALUES are the same as described by STAT.

This intrinsic is provided in both subroutine and function forms; however, only one form can be used in any given program unit.

Standard:
GNU extension
Class:
Subroutine, function
Syntax:

CALL LSTAT(NAME, VALUES [, STATUS])
STATUS = LSTAT(NAME, VALUES)

Arguments:

NAME The type shall be CHARACTER of the default kind, a valid path within the file system.
VALUES The type shall be INTEGER(4), DIMENSION(13).
STATUS (Optional) status flag of type INTEGER(4). Returns 0 on success and a system specific error code otherwise.
