Programmer's Guide for FFORM. Physical Processes in Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems, Computer Programs and Graphics Capabilities.
Anderson, Lougenia; Gales, Larry
This module is part of a series 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 written in ANSI Fortran IV which permits users to assign input values to program variables by name without regard to position or order. It is especially suitable for the input of directives which control the operation of interactive programs. FFORM is similar to the Namelist input/output systems found in many implementations of FORTRAN but features greatly superior error messages and error recovery procedures, and offers additional capabilities such as I/O, annotation of input, and echoing of input. A more detailed description of the purpose and use of FFORM is contained in its user's guide. (Author/CS)
