Edit (‘Q’) Parameters

This section lists the unchangeable edit (‘q’) parameters in KEPLER that may be edited (but not directly changed) during execution by the “q n” command, e.g.,

q 7
q iter

where N stands for the name or number of the parameters listed below. The mode of these parameters (fixed or floating point) follows the normal FORTRAN convention. They are remembered in the restart dumps and more may readily be added.

Implementation Details

They are located in the general COMMON in include file KEPCOM (starting with dt (q 1)) and their ASCII names and types are listed respectively in the nameqparm and iqtype arrays loaded in data block KEPDAT. They are initialized in subroutine GENER and also (if necessary) subroutine RESTART, e.g., when new parameter are added and an loder version is loaded.
