Testing HYPOELLIPSE on a PC

HYPOELLIPSE runs on my PC/AT-clone with 523,632 BYTES of free memory, although the program may require more or  less memory depending on the current array dimensions.

A math coprocessor will be used if present.

To run the test data, do the following:

Create a directory, for example STDTEST (MKDIR STDTEST)

Go to that directory:  CD STDTEST and put the following control and output files into the directory:

Control Files:
HYPO.CTL
CONTROL.DAT
STATIONS.DAT
PHASES.DAT 
IASP91P.TAB
IASP91S.TAB

Output files from test run:
HYPOE.1ST 
HYPOE.2ST  (zero length for this run)
HYPOE.3SC
HYPOE.4SC
HYPOE.5SC
HYPOE.SUM 
HYPOE.OUT 
HYPOE.LOG 
HYPOE.ARC 

 

Now create a subdirectory named mytest and copy the control files into that directory.

Run hypoel.exe in the mytest directory, as follows:

Give the command HYPOEL and then answer the questions as indicated below in capitals:

hypoellipse input filename (stdin)? HYPO.CTL

root for output filenames (hypoe)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

log filename or "screen" (hypoe.log)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

filename for printer output or "log"

answer "log" to combine with log file (hypoe.out)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

will this job generate a summary file (No)? Y

wummary output filename (hypoe.sum)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

will this job generate an archive file (No)? Y

archive output filename (hypoe.arc)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

use travel time tables (No)? Y

filename for first table <none>? IASP91P.TAB

filename for second table (none)? IASP91S.TAB

filename for third table (none)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

Does job relocate events with revised sta. delays (No)? <PRESS ENTER KEY>

The output files of interest will are:

HYPOE.SUM 
HYPOE.OUT 
HYPOE.LOG 
HYPOE.ARC

Compare these files with those in the STDTEST directory to be sure the program is running correctly on your computer. Note that the date the data are run is recorded in the output file (.OUT) and in the archive (.ARC) file, so there will be some differences between your run and distribution files. The other files generated are scratch files, and may be deleted.
