Ouput files

By default, J-Solver produces three files after a successful run: eqdsk.cdf, jso.profiles and jso.scalars. Two small database files dbequp and dbequs can in addition be produced by setting DBWRT = 1 in inequ (or use the corresponding ``set'' call).

The files jso.profiles and jso.scalars contain information about global parameters and profiles in ASCII format. By far the largest file, eqdsk.cdf is a collection of radial profiles (pressure, safety factor etc.) and (X, Z) arrays, which serves as interface to a collection of PPPL codes such as PEST, NOVA, DMAP etc. The eqdsk.cdf file is written in NetCDF format ( using the EZCDF routines--a set of easy-to-use interface routines available from The content of eqdsk.cdf can be viewed by typing

ncdump eqdsk.cdf | more

An example showing how to read eqdsk.cdf data is provided in the reqdsk.f file.

J-Solver can run silently by setting

	CALL jsoSetIverbose(0)
	CALL jsoSETIeqdsk(0)
