NARGS(III)                   5/10/73                   NARGS(III)

     nargs - argument count

     nargs( )

     Nargs  returns  the  number of actual parameters supplied by
     the caller of the routine which calls nargs.

     The argument count is accurate only when none of the  actual
     parameters  is  float  or  double.  Such parameters count as
     four arguments instead of one.

     As indicated.  Also, this routine does not work (and  cannot
     be  made  to work) in programs with separated I and D space.
     Altogether it is best to avoid using this  routine  and  de-
     pend, for example, on passing an explicit argument count.
