[Equest-users] Input

Hi Mike,

As John says, you can open the .inp file in notepad, Word, or probably any text editor of you choosing, and print from there.  Strictly speaking, the user's inputs for any model in "wizard" level edits (prior to working in detailed mode) are in the .pd2 file.  This file can be opened, reviewed, and printed in the same fashion.

That said, I can't think of a compelling reason to print either... you're talking literally hundreds of pages for medium-to-large models.

If you mean to do so for backup reasons, you (and the forests) are probably better off doing so in digital format.  These are small files.

If you mean to produce something for review of user inputs into the model, there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer - you'll need to provide more details/context for your intended purpose.

Hope this helps!

The actual input file is the DOE-2 .INP file, which you can print out as a tet or Word file. Depending on your understanding of DOE-2. you may or may not recognize how things are structured within the .INP file. But this is the actual input file.

Perhaps others could suggest reading to better understand the file, if Mike is a somewhat newcomer to eQuest and DOE-2.
