Print file and error messages

SWAN always creates a print file. Usually the name of this file is identical to the name of the command file of the computations with the extension (.SWN) replaced with (.PRT). Otherwise, it depends on the batch file that is used by the user. Consult the Implementation Manual for more information.


The print file contains an echo of the command file, an overview of the actual physical and numerical parameters to be used in the simulation run, and possibly warning and error messages. These messages are usually self-explanatory. The print file also contains computational results if the user so requests (with command BLOCK or TABLE).


IN ANY CASE, ALWAYS CHECK THE PRINT FILE!
