Pre and Post Processors SIG
The aim of this group was to obtain for ICF users general-purpose interactive pre-processors. The SIG supported basic tools ranging from Geometric Modellers and Mesh Generators to Command Decoders and Graphical Input aids. Software modules for use in constructing interactive post-processors (eg, database management, high-level graphics, command decoding) were also obtained. Software made available included DBOS (a library of Fortran-callable subroutines to perform data management for applications software) and SIMPLEPLOT (a library of Fortran routines for producing good quality annotated graphs quickly and easily).
The work of SIGTIP was hampered early on by the inability to recruit staff to do the work. Later, the activities overlapped the Single User System programme where some of the results are discussed.
