Since expansion of references to environment variable (e.g., $ANCHOR) is
done by the shell, I don't think that you will be able to do what you
want to do in one step.  Instead, you will need to:

- call the Fortran library routine 'getenv' to get the value of your
  'anchor' variable (environment variable)

- run the comand using the library routine 'system'

Here is some code that should approximate this:

      character*80 anchor
      integer      len_trim
      integer      length
 ...
      call getenv('ANCHOR', anchor)
      length = len_trim(anchor)
      call system(anchor(1:length)//'emailnote '//CSTAT)

Cheers,

Tom
