	This inteface allows the Ultamate command scanner (ULTCMD) to
	be called from Pascal, as in :

	program	test;

var	I : integer;
	CEOL : packed array[0..1] of char;

function PASULT(num_of_strings : integer ; CLREOL,PROMPT : string ;
		a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,j,k,l : string ) : integer; extern;

	CEOL[0] := chr(16);
	CEOL[1] := chr(28);	{ gp-100 Clear to EOL codes }
	while TRUE do begin
	I := PASULT (11,CEOL,'% ','read','rename','renumber','request',
	writeln(tty,'Index : ',I:0)

	The value returned is the relative command number eg an integer
	between 1 and num_of_strings.

	movei	1,TABLE			;standard calling sequence for ULTCMD
	call	GETCMD			;call command subroutine
