4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

CHECKR can recognise the difference between ENDF-6 and ENDF-5 formats and performs its tests accordingly. Integer control fields are checked to see that ENDF/B procedural limits on those fields are not violated. To the extent possible, fatal format errors are trapped to prevent unwanted termination of the program. Any file which passes through CHECKR without error messages fully conforms to the ENDF format.
