12 February 1993 APMOD: a graphical PC-based preprocessor for APART/PADE
Author Affiliations +
One of the major hardships with using APART is its lack of graphics that clearly picture the optical-mechanical system input to the program. The APART MOdel Development (APMOD) program was designed to overcome this problem, and at the same time make the development of complex models simple and efficient. APMOD combines a screen editor, a syntax checker, a help system, and a graphics package into one easy-to-use program. One of the unique aspects of APMOD is that it is an outstanding tool for teaching new users how to develop optical-mechanical models for stray light analysis by APART.
