3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

  FIZCON is a program for checking that an evaluated data file has valid data and conforms to recommended procedures.
USCD1209/09
NEW VERSION DIFFERS FROM PREVIOUS VERSION IN THE FOLLOWING FEATURES
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This version corrects all bugs reported to NNDC as of February 1, 2009 and
supersede all previous releases.

Version 8.03   June 2009        A. Trkov
               1. Make error printout conditional for IZAPT>0 in MF10
               2. Skip test on QM in MF10 for MT5

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

FIZCON can recognise the difference between ENDF-6 and ENDF-5 formats and performs its tests accordingly. Some of the tests performed include:
1. data arrays are in increasing energy order;
2. resonance parameter widths add up to the total;
3. Q-values are reasonable and consistent;
4. no required sections are missing and all cover the proper energy range;
5. secondary distributions are normalized to 1.0;
6. energy conservation in decay spectra.
Optional tests can be performed to check the redundant cross sections, and algorithms can be used to check for possible incorrect entry of data values (Deviant Point test).

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

In addition to the batch mode version of each program, there are three interactive versions, one for WINDOWS compiled using HP Visual Fortran, one for OpenVMS and one for UNIX compiled using the Lahey Fortran-95 Compiler. These versions prompt the user for each piece of input data instead of reading it from an input file.
