data - list of various data files in $NEMODAT


Various data files may have been supplied with the NEMO version you have running, and can be found in the directory $NEMODAT. The convention for filename extensions is that ascii files have extension .data, whereas binary filestruct(5NEMO) files have extension .dat, although this is not always strictly enforced. Sometimes both the binary and ascii file may be present, in which case you have to confirm that tsf produces the right result by comparing with the ascii data version.

Some table files are specifically designed for the N-body creation program mkommod.

The environment variable NEMODAT is defined as part of your normal NEMO setup, programs sometimes use this as a default directory to search for data.
