performs indirect assignment

CALL VALSET( char-scalar, argument);

The inputs to the VALSET subroutine are as follows:
is a character scalar containing the name of a matrix.

is a value to which the matrix is set.
The VALSET subroutine expects a single character string argument containing the name of a matrix. It looks up the matrix and moves the value of the second argument to this matrix. For example, the following statements find that the value of the argument b is a and then assign the value 99 to a, the indirect result:

    call valset(b,99);
The previous value of the indirect result is freed. The following statement sets b to 99, but the value of a is unaffected by this statement:
