3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The Database for Prompt Gamma-ray Neutron Activation Analysis (PGAA) provides a variety of tables for all natural elements (from H to U) including the following data: isotopic composition, thermal radiative cross section (total and partial), Westcott g-factors, energy of the gamma rays (prompt and delayed), decay mode, half life and branching ratios.
PGAA can be used in fields such as material science, geology, mining, archeology, environment, food analysis and medecine.
The PGAA is delivered with:
- Database viewer for carying out searches by isotope, energy and cross-section
- An isotope explorer 2.2 ENSDF viewer for displaying the level-scheme drawings and tables.

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION

The package is written in DOS, linux shell script, html, java.
IAEA1413/01
A large number of modifications were necessary to run the code under linux, all involving the file and directory names which included mixed upper and lower case letters in the original version, while on the contrary the calling procedures uses either upper case only or lower case only letters. The problem is meaningless under WINDOWS.
