RSIC COMPUTER CODE PSR-035
1. NAME AND TITLE
EDITOR: Alters Mode, Copies, Merges, Punches, Edits, or Adds to ENDF/B-Formatted Data
on Tapes or Cards.
EDITOR is also packaged in the Argonne Code Center under Abstract #502.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV; IBM 360 (A), CDC 6600 (B).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
EDITOR is a cross section handling code for use with the Evaluated Nuclear Data Files (ENDF).
It produces readable listings of the contents of ENDF/B nuclear data cross section tapes. It also allows
copying, altering mode, merging and punching of the data on one or more ENDF/B tapes.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
EDITOR will edit and print, in a legible form, information from ENDF/B formatted data. In
addition, it will alter the mode (BCD or binary) of a data set, copy or punch any portion or all of the
data, merge several data sets, or add additional data to an existing data set. Input may be one or more
magnetic tapes, punched cards, or a printed edit of the data. It processes materials, files (in the
ENDF/B sense) or sections (reaction types) according to input instructions.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
A maximum of 50 materials may be handled in one batch, where a batch is a group of associated
input instructions. A maximum of 5 files per material and 15 sections per file may be requested in
each batch. Files 1 to 5, 7, 12 to 15, and 23 will be processed by the program. Other files will be
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
EDITOR takes 30 seconds on the IBM 360/91 computer to edit one complete ENDF/B material
which has 10,000 BCD card images. The sample problem compiles and executes in less than 8
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
EDITOR was designed for the IBM 360/75/91 computers using approximately 300 K bytes of core space. It is also operable on the CDC 6600/7600 computers.
Punch and printer capability must be available.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran IV compiler is required. EDITOR may be run in the 360/75/91 Fortran IV operating
