The archive file kernel.zip contains the files:
|lar12524.txt||the original program description from COSMIC|
|kernel.f90||the complete source code in modern Fortran|
|original.src||the original copy of the source code (from COSMIC)|
|Sample cases for this program are:|
|case1.inp||input data for sample case 1|
|case1.out||output data for case1.inp|
To compile this program for your machine, use the command
gfortran kernel.f90 -o kernel.exe
Linux and Macintosh users may prefer to omit the .exe on the output file name.
It is best if you compile the programs using your Fortran compiler with the appropriate options for your computer system. If you do not wish to do this, you may download kernelexecs.zip containing the files kernel.exe, kernel.mac, and kernel.lnx, the executable program for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, each compiled generically for an Intel CPU.
To launch the program, enter
at the command line. The program asks for the name of the input file and proceeds to the end of the computation. The structure of the input file must conform to the input guidelines as described in the users guide in Appendix H of NASA CR-114895 (see reference page). A file called kernel.out is produced as output.
