1.7} Code structure, technical aspects

  --------------------------------------

  * The whole program, including the numerical constants, is coded in double
    precision (at least the versions for 32-bit word machines). The only
    exceptions are the low-energy neutron cross sections, which are stored in
    single precision to save space.
  * Consistent use of the latest recommended set of the physical constant
    values [PDG].
  * Dynamic memory allocation is implemented as far as possible.
  * Extensive use of INCLUDE statements and of constant parameterisation.
  * 64-bit random number generator [Mar04].
