FOR EACH SIMULATION

Data Set 0

[#Text]

Item 0 is optional—“#” must be in column 1. Item 0 can be repeated multiple times.

Text—is a character variable (199 characters) that starts in column 2. Any characters can be included in Text. The “#” character must be in column 1. Lines beginning with # are restricted to the first lines of the file. Text is written to the Listing File.

Data Set 1

NP

NP repetitions of Item 2 are read.

 

Data Set 2

PARNAM Parval

NP repetitions of Item 2 are read.

PARNAM—is the name of a parameter whose value is to be defined. This name can consist of 1 to 10 characters and is not case sensitive. That is, any combination of the same characters with different case will be equivalent.

Parval—is the parameter value. This value overrides the parameter value specified in the file where the parameter is defined.
