C Language

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.
