RFM Driver Table Sections

*HIT Section: HITRAN Line Data

24SEP17

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

Description
HITRAN binary data filename
RFM v5: HITRAN .par (ASCII) file can also be used

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

Notes
  1. (prior to RFM v5) The file used is not the original HITRAN ASCII data but an RFM-specific binary version (to allow fast, random access). This binary version can be created by the hitbin program
  2. RFM v5: the original HITRAN .par file (160 character text records) can also be used directly, although this will be slower since every record has to be read.
  3. 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 tables anyway.

Example
*HIT 
       hitran_2012.hit    ! HITRAN 2012 data
