Abstract : A user's guide for MAGPIE, a one-dimensional Lagrangian magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) computer code, has been prepared. MAGPIE is suitable for cylindrical geometries of conducting and insulating materials, whose equations of state are either provided by the code or the user. Although time-dependent boundary conditions can be employed by the user, MAGPIE is capable of solving an external series circuit. As an example, an exploding wire problem has been run with MAGPIE. The resulting velocities and current features agree qualitatively with experimental findings. (Author)
