FMEDIA - specify output media code.


call fmedia(lgu, media)


is the unit number of an output file.
is an integer expression which specifies the desired media code. It must be one of 0, 2, 3, 6, or 7. Other values are ignored.


FMEDIA is used to force a particular output media code for formatted output files. It may be called on for an input file, but doesn't really do anything.

If the file is being opened with OPEN or ATTACH, this must be done before the call to FMEDIA.
