DSPACK is a data manager. It allows the user to store data in a form which makes them accessible by other programs. The objects ( Data Sets) correspond to arrays of structures in C or Fortran and the package allows the user to move data easily between local and DSPACK memory.
If the user's program uses pointers, then the distinction between local data and common data is almost non-existent.
