Description:  Returns the value of the kind parameter of an integer data type.  
Class:  Transformational function; Generic 
Arguments:  R must be scalar and of type integer. 
Results:  The result is a scalar of type default integer. The result has a value equal to the value of the kind parameter of the integer data type that represents all values n in the range of values n with -10R < n < 10R.

If no such kind type parameter is available on the processor, the result is -1. If more than one kind type parameter meets the criteria, the value returned is the one with the smallest decimal exponent range. (For information on the integer model, see Section D.1.)
