3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The IFF-package contains input  modules for use within FORTRAN programs. This package enables the programmer to easily include interactive menu-directed data input (module VTMEN1) and command-word processing (module INPCOM) into a FORTRAN program.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION:  No mathematical operations are performed.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Certain restrictions of use may arise from the dimensioning of arrays. Field lengths are  defined via PARAMETER-statments.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The running time of VTMEN1 depends on the terminal interface. The transmission speed should be at least 9600 baud to make efficient interactive work possible. The running time of INPCOM is in the order of a few seconds.
