The usual advantages of a C code versus Fortran code applies here.
In C, one can dynamically allocate memory for structure arrays and
matrices as the calculation requires them. The memory is freed when it
is no longer needed. This results in a smaller executable file. C
code, in general, is easily ported to other types of computers. (So
far the program has been tested only on the SUN SPARCstation.) The
code is written in a verbose style (i.e., variable names are based on
unabbreviated physical quantity names) that makes it easy for anyone
to understand the code.
