Once the type of unformatted file has been determined the program will prompt the user as follows:

     Do You Want to Convert the Entire Data File? (Y or N)

If the user responds with either a 'Y' or a 'y', then the program will convert the entire data file (up to 366 days for a leap year).  If the user responds with either an 'N' or an 'n', then the program will prompt the user as follows:

     Enter the Start Date and End Date (e.g. 1,365):

The user can select a single day or a range of (Julian) days within the year to convert to the ASCII file.

     If the BINTOASC program encounters a calm hour in the unformatted data file, which is identified by a wind speed of 1.0 m/s and a flow vector equal to the flow vector for the previous hour, then it writes out a wind speed of 0.0 for that hour, which is interpreted by the ISC2 Short Term models as a calm hour.  The flow vector variable written to the ASCII file corresponds to the randomized flow vector in the unformatted data file.  The structure of the PCRAMMET‑generated unformatted data file and the default ASCII file are described in detail in Appendix F.


     The METLIST.EXE program is a utility program that creates a listing file of meteorological data for a specified day or range of days, which can be sent to a printer.  The program lists one day of data per page, with appropriate column headers for the meteorological variables.  The original version of the ISCST model included an option to print the hourly meteorological data within the main output file.  This option has not been included in the ISCST3 model.  The user can use the METLIST program instead to create a listing for the data period of interest, and refer to that listing as needed to examine the meteorological data.  Since the ISCST3 model also uses ASCII sequential hourly files (see Sections 3.5.1 and C.1), the meteorological data file can be examined directly through an editor or listing program, or the ASCII file itself can be printed.  Therefore, the need for an option to list meteorological data within the program has been reduced.  Also, the ISCEV2 model contains the option to list the hourly meteorological data for specific events that are of interest to the user.
