3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

PSACON is a utility program for the PSAOUT-I standard output files produced in probabilistic system  assessment simulations for radioactive waste management studies.
It carries out the following tasks:
- conversion from binary to coded (EBCDIC/ASCII) form
- conversion from coded (EBCDIC/ASCII) to binary form
- copy from binary to binary
- copy from coded (EBCDIC/ASCII) to coded (EBCDIC/ASCII)
- provide an edited summary of the file content.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The conversion and copying follows the standard interface format description of PSAOUT-I.
