Abstract Simulations constitute an important family of computer applications in science and engineering. To perform each simulation run, it is usually necessary to provide extensive data specifying the parameters of the simulation as well as data which support the calculation models involved. We have designed a program and a file structure that provides a method for convenient data entry, and creates and edits data files according to specifications contained in a separate file that serves as a template. By providing different templates, the same program can be made to serve numerous applications. The structure of the data files allows a degree of flexibility difficult to achieve using conventional database systems.
