3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

Picture generates plots of two-dimensional slices through the three-dimensional geometry described by the combinatorial geometry (CG) package used in such codes as MORSE and QAD-CG. These plots are printed on a standard line printer.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Several different ways are available to obtain  a two-dimensional slice through the geometry. The geometry ray tracing capability is tested by forcing the geometry package to execute the routines and logic of the Monte Carlo random walk or kernel integration algorithms.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

None tested besides  those listed in the input descriptions.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:  The sample problems run in a few minutes on the IBM PC.
PSR-0238/01
The sample problems were run at the NEA-DB on a PC-DELL 466/L (processor 80486, 66 MHz). The elapsed time needed to run the  TANK sample problem is of the order of half a second whereas the DWS sample problem takes slightly more than one second to run.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

PICTURE is operable on an IBM PC with 640K memory. The IBM Professional version requires an 8087 math coprocessor.
PSR-0238/01
The two sample problems were run at the NEA-DB on a PC  DELL 466/L (processor 80486, 66 MHz, a base memory of 640 Kbytes and extended memory of 15648 Kbytes). The file size of both executable versions is of the order of 100 Kbytes.

13. OPERATING SYSTEM UNDER WHICH PROGRAM IS EXECUTED

IBM Personal Computer Professional Fortran. Version 1.0, or Microsoft Fortran Version 3.31 is required for compilation.
The code was run at RSIC under PC DOS 3.1.
PSR-0238/01
The programs ran at the NEA-DB under MS-DOS 6.0, compiled with the FORTRAN-77 Lahey F77L-EM/32 Version 5.11 compiler, and linked with the linker 386LINK.
