RFM Driver Table Sections

*HIT Section: HITRAN Line Data

15JUL18

Type
Secondary Section - depends on whether HITRAN 'line' data (molecules (ID#1:99) is required

Description
HITRAN binary or ASCII (.par file) filename

Format
Single field.
FieldTypeDescription
FILHIT C*200 Name of .hit or .par File

Notes
  1. The *HIT section is optional if all 'line' molecules are represented by Look-Up Tables instead, but since you are likely to have only one version of the HITRAN data then you might as well keep the *HIT section in the driver table anyway (data available in LUTs takes precedence).
  2. The .par file is the 160-character record format that can be downloaded from the HITRAN web-site.
  3. Reading the .par file can be quite slow, so a faster alternative is to convert the .par file to an RFM-specific binary format (.hit file) using the the hitbin program

Example
*HIT 
       hitran_2012.hit    ! HITRAN 2012 data
