   CSPICE_EKACLD adds a column of character data to an EK 

   For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
   the CSPICE routine ekaclc_c.


      handle   the scalar integer referring to an EK file open for 
               write access
      segno    the scalar integer indicating EK segment number
               for the new record
      column   the scalar string naming the target column for the data
               stored in 'cvals'
      vallen   a scalar integer describing the maximum size for the
               individual 'cvals' elements
      cvals    an array of strings, listed in row order,
               containing the data to add to the EK referred to by 'handle'
      entszs   an array of integers containing the sizes of column
               entries - used only for columns possessing variable size
               entries; the ith element of 'entszs' corresponds to the
               size of the ith entry of 'cvals'
      nlflgs   an array of booleans indicating whether the
               corresponding 'cvals' has a null value, with
               the ith entry of 'nlflgs' corresponding to the ith
               entry of 'cvals'
      rcptrs   an integer array of record pointers, returned from
               cspice_ekifld, for the input segment
      wkindx   a read/write array of integers, used as a workspace
               when building an column index - as this array
               functions as read/write, the calling routine must
               declare an appropriate size of nrows (the number of 
               rows in the column)
   the call:
      cspice_ekaclc, handle, segno, column, vallen ,cvals, entszs, $
                     nlflgs, rcptrs, wkindx
   writes the 'cvals' data to 'column' in segment 'segno' of the
   EK referred to by 'handle'.


   Any numerical results shown for this example may differ between
   platforms as the results depend on the SPICE kernels used as input
   and the machine specific arithmetic implementation.
