Abstract : A set of editing codes has been developed to integrate (with or without weighting) the differential fluxes calculated by the Neutron Gamma Monte Carlo (NGM) atmospheric transport of radiation code, which is being prepared by Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL). The NGM code output is the radiation flux at various detector points as a function of the source energy and the solid angle in which the radiation left the source, the energy of the radiation at the detector, the time at which it reaches the detector, and the solid angle through which it comes to the detector. The program described in this report takes the Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) output of the NGM code and converts it to binary, which is the form of input acceptable by the USANDL editing codes. The conversion program is written in the Valley Forge Assembly Program (VFAP) language for a GE 225 digital computer having a 16k core storage and six magnetic tape drives. (Author)
