Abstract : The General Purpose Input Processor (INPUTP) program is a very flexible, entirely data-driven utility that may be used as an input preprocessor to any FORTRAN program. The INPUTP program reads two external files to define the names and default values for all user input. Then through input, the user may override the default values for any input parameters. The Input Processor generates either two FORTRAN block data routines containing DATA statements, or a binary data file, two FORTRAN read routines, and an output routine for printing the Initial Conditions Report. These routines must be compiled and loaded to initialize all input variables. All data area read by the Input Processor in a free-form format, which simplifies the creation and maintenance of the data files and greatly reduces the chances for user input errors. The INPUTP program is coded in the SIMSCRIPT 11.5 language, and is operational on the Control Data Corporation (CDC) 6700 computer system under the SCOPE 3.4 operating system. (Author)
