RSIC COMPUTER CODE PSR-087
1. NAME AND TITLE
LIBMAK: ANISN-Type Binary Data Processing Code System.
Plasma Physics Laboratory, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV; IBM 360/370.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
LIBMAK manipulates ANISN-type binary libraries. Input data may be taken from old libraries or card decks in AREAD (FIDO) format. Commands are available to create, revise, combine, list, and punch data stored in the standard ANISN format.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The manipulation of the libraries by LIBMAK is a straight-forward bookkeeping job governed by input control cards. The routine AREAD is used to allow free-format specification of new data arrays and revisions.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The maximum library array size which can be handled is set by the dimensions of four internal storage arrays. A version of LIBMAK large enough to process the DLC-2 library (with arrays dimensioned 100 by 103) requires about 260 K bytes on an IBM 360/370 computer.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
On the IBM 360/91, eight DLC-2 type arrays were read by AREAD, listed, and added to a library in 12 seconds.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
LIBMAK is operable on the IBM 360/370 computers.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran IV compiler is required.
