Dear Francesca,

I have noticed in your source.f file a few "unclean" things that in some
rare cases could give you trouble. Although the following are probably not
the cause of your problem, I suggest that you correct them.

1) There is an IF which starts this way:
          IF (TEGR(I+1) .GT. XYZ...
     If you are unlucky, it can happen that TEGR(I+1) is exactly equal to XYZ:
     in that case the IF will be never true. Replace it by
          IF (TEGR(I+1) .GE. XYZ...

2) The DATA statements concerning the ENEDGE, FLUX and RATIO arrays are
     written as if those data were in single precision (with an "e" instead of
     a "d", or without anything at all). The same happens at several points
     inside the routine, for instance:
          IF (ENE.GE.1.0e-11.AND.ENE.LE.2.15443e-11) THEN
          X1 = GAUSS1*5.67161e-01
          Y1 = GAUSS2*5.39079e-01
     Force all floating point numbers to be in double precision using "d" in
     the exponent:
          IF (ENE.GE.1.0d-11.AND.ENE.LE.2.15443d-11) THEN
          X1 = GAUSS1*5.67161d-01
          Y1 = GAUSS2*5.39079d-01

3) There are 4 cases where a message is written on "LNUOUT". You will
     probably never see those messages. The name of output logical unit
     is LUNOUT.

4) This is not an error, but something that will make your routine
     unnecessarily inefficient: the calculation of the cumulative distribution
     is done again and again every time the source is called. Put it inside
     the initial IF: IF ( LFIRST ) THEN... after the comment
     "User initialization", so that it wil be done just once, the first time.

Best regards,
