3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

The programme produces graphical  output of ENDF/B materials.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Only file 3 (cross sections) is plotted; MT=1, 2 and 102 (total, scattering and capture) are produced on a log-log scale. The remaining reactions are produced on a linear scale.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

All sections must be  in pointwise form (no resonance parameters). For this purpose the RESEND code e.g. should be run before.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

24 seconds for Uranium-238 (MAT=1262) on an IBM 370/168 under OS/MVS2.
NEADB executed the test case of the package on IBM 3081 in 3 seconds of CPU time. The graphics routines, however, were not run.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

All the materials of a given tape are plotted. When RESEND has not been run before only the background is plotted.
