Obsolete Syntax



For each WRITE statement that writes the content of the data object dobj to a list at any list level after the statement MINIMUM (forbidden in classes) is executed, the minimum value of all values of dobj produced since the statement MINIMUM was executed with WRITE is determined and assigned to a data object min_dobj.

The statement MINIMUM declares the global data object min_dobj with the same type as dobj. All data objects can be specified for dobj that can be written to a list using the statement WRITE. The statement MINIMUM must not be specified within a procedure and it may be specified in a program only once.


This statement is not permitted in classes because it works with implicitly created global variables. The built-in function nmin can, for example, be used instead.
