SLITE is provided to support some very old programs that depended on reading some switches to control program action. The Fortran library maintains 35 simulated switches that can be set, reset and tested. These switches have nothing to do with the GCOS program switch word.
Instead of the simulated switches, a program should use the some combination of logical variables, a data card with control options, and the GCOS program switch word.
