3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

DRAGON2PARTISN is an auxiliary program for generating ASCII input cross section data for the code PARTISN (version 4.0) by reading the ASCII output cross section data from the code DRAGON (version 3.05). This program is suitable for reactor design since it can generate hundreds of macroscopic cross sections for PARTISN in few seconds while reading different materials distributed in multiple output files of the DRAGON code.
