Input / output facilities

To assist in making the command file, an edit file is available to the user (see Appendix C). In its original form this file consists only of comments; all lines begin with exclamation mark. In the file, all commands as given in this User Manual (Chapter 4) are reproduced as mnemonics for making the final command file. Hence, the user does not need to consult the User Manual every time to check the correct spelling of keywords, order of data, etc. The user is advised to first copy the edit file (the copy file should have a different name) and then start typing commands between the comment lines of the edit file.

However, the general rule is that output is produced by SWAN only at the user's request. The instructions of the user to control output are separated into three categories:
