Obsolete Syntax



For each WRITE statement that writes the content of the dobj data object to a list at any list level after the MINIMUM statement (which is not permitted in classes) is executed, the minimum value of all values output with WRITE since the MINIMUM statement was executed is determined by dobj and assigned to a min_dobj data object.

The MINIMUM statement declares global data object min_dobj with the same type as dobj. For dobj, you can specify all data objects that can be written to a list with the WRITE statement. The MINIMUM statement must not be listed within a procedure and may be listed in a program only once.


This statement is not permitted in classes because it works with global variables created implicitly. In its place, you can use predefined function nmin, for example.
