1. NAME AND TITLE
DATINIT: Interactive Program To Access Photon Interaction Data.
PHOTON.DAT: Photon Interaction Data Extracted From DLC-99/HUGO.
Australian Radiation Laboratory, Yallambie, Australia.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 66; Data General Eclipse MV/family Computers (P00258DGMV100).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
DATINIT provides access to photon interaction data from within a Fortran program for efficiency
in a mini-computer environment.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
From the primary photon interaction data file of DLC-99/HUGO, 100 separate data files were
extracted, one per element. The user must write a driver program for DATINIT to extract the data
of interest. The extracted photon interaction data are written to a disk file named
'Znnn_aa.PHOTON.DAT', where nnn is the 3-digit atomic number and aa is the character symbol for
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Because this code is interactive and uses Data General system routines, its transportability is
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
The run time depends on the number of elements to be processed. Extracting one element only
takes a few seconds.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
DATINIT runs on Data General Eclipse series computers. It was developed on a MV/8000 and
tested at RSIC on a MV/4000 under AOS/VS.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Data General's Fortran 5 compiler is required.
