Manual Page for Command >>>> DECPOINT


Syntax
>>>> DECPOINT: POINT/NOPOINT

Parent Command
>>> PEST

Subcommand
-

Description
iTOUGH2 capabilities can be applied to non-TOUGH2 models using the PEST interface. By selecting the keyword NOPOINT, the decimal point in the representation of a parameter in the input file is omitted, potentially increasing the accuracy of a parameter value. However, this should be done with great caution, as fields read by FORTRAN programs with format specifiers such as (F6.2) or (E8.2) will insert their own decimal points. Therefore, POINT is the default option.

Example
> COMPUTATION
>> OPTION
>>> PEST
>>>> EXECUTABLE : pointnopoint.exe
>>>> TEMPLATE : 1
pointnopoint.tpl whatsthepoint.in

>>>> INSTRUCTION : 1
pointnopoint.ins pointless.out
