User's Guide for Subroutine FFORM. Physical Processes in Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems, Computer Programs and Graphics Capabilities.
Gales, Larry; Anderson, Lougenia
These materials were designed to be used by life science students for instruction in the application of physical theory to ecosystem operation. Most modules contain computer programs which are built around a particular application of a physical process. FFORM is a portable format-free input subroutine package which simplifies the input of values to computer programs. It is especially suitable for the input of directives which control the operation of interactive programs. FFORM input is controlled mainly by the user rather than the program and features a relaxed input syntax which assigns values to program variables by names without regard to position or order, and with blanks or comments freely interspersed. This module is based on the assumption that FFORM is already incorporated as a subroutine in an existing program. Three sample runs of typical FFORM input are included in the module. (Author/CS)
