void insrtc_c ( ConstSpiceChar * item,
SpiceCell * set )
Insert an item into a character set.
VARIABLE I/O DESCRIPTION
-------- --- --------------------------------------------------
item I Item to be inserted.
set I/O Insertion set.
item is an item which is to be inserted into the specified
set. item may or may not already be an element of the
set. Trailing blanks in item are not significant.
set is a CSPICE set. set must be declared as a character
On input, set may or may not contain the input item
as an element.
set on output contains the union of the input set and
the singleton set containing the input item.
1) If the input set argument is a SpiceCell of type other than
character, the error SPICE(TYPEMISMATCH) is signaled.
2) If the insertion of the element into the set causes an excess
of elements, the error SPICE(SETEXCESS) is signaled.
3) If the input set argument does not qualify as a CSPICE set,
the error SPICE(NOTASET) will be signaled. CSPICE sets have
their data elements sorted in increasing order and contain
no duplicate data elements.
4) If the input string pointer is null, the error SPICE(NULLPOINTER)
1) In the following example, the element "PLUTO" is removed from
the character set planets and inserted into the character set
Declare the sets with string length NAMLEN and with maximum
number of elements MAXSIZ.
SPICECHAR_CELL ( planets, MAXSIZ, NAMLEN );
SPICECHAR_CELL ( asteroids, MAXSIZ, NAMLEN );
removc_c ( "PLUTO", &planets );
insrtc_c ( "PLUTO", &asteroids );
If "PLUTO" is not an element of planets, then the contents of
planets are not changed. Similarly, if "PLUTO" is already an
element of asteroids, the contents of asteroids remain unchanged.
Because inserting an element into a set can increase the
cardinality of the set, an error may occur in the insertion
1) String comparisons performed by this routine are Fortran-style:
trailing blanks in the input set or key value are ignored.
This gives consistent behavior with CSPICE code generated by
the f2c translator, as well as with the Fortran SPICE Toolkit.
Note that this behavior is not identical to that of the ANSI
C library functions strcmp and strncmp.

-CSPICE Version 2.1.0, 07-MAR-2009 (NJB)
This file now includes the header file f2cMang.h.
This header supports name mangling of f2c library
-CSPICE Version 2.0.0, 01-NOV-2005 (NJB)
Bug fix: when the item to be inserted would, after
truncation to the set's string length, match an item
already in the set, no insertion is performed. Previously
the truncated string was inserted, corrupting the set.
Long error message was updated to include size of
set into which insertion was attempted.
