3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION
The PCNUDAT program gives access to nuclear data extracted from several data bases. The data consists of five types:
a) nuclear level information,
b) decay gamma information,
c) nuclear ground/metastable state properties,
d) nuclear radiations,
d) thermal neutron cross sections and resonance
The program allows users to enter information interactively in order to construct a retrieval. This information is supplied by the user by answering a series of questions. When the program requires selecting from an option list, you need enter only the first character of the option name.
Helpful information is maintained on the screen at all times and only those parts of the screen affected by an action will be updated. User input is greatly simplified with menus provided where possible.
The levels, gammas and radiations database files only contain data from A=40 to A=50. They are for test purposes only.
PCNULIB libraries have been updated on Aug. 19, 2002 and correspond to the archival ENSDF data.
