file is the logical MOLPRO file number (1-9). name is the file name (will be converted to lower case). status can be one of the following:
Note that RESTART is now the default for all permanent files. All temporary files are usually allocated automatically where needed. I/O buffers are allocated at the top of the dynamic memory, and the available memory decreases by the size of the buffers. The MEMORY card must therefore be presented before the first FILE card!
Note that filenames are converted to lower case on unix machines.
