print_switch (lprint)

This enables the printing of many quantities which are defined locally at the last spatial zone of the calculation. These include ion fractions, heating and cooling rates, line and continuum emissivities and opacitites, execution times, and level populations. They are printed to the log file, xout_step.log. Default value is 0, and results in just the 500 brightest line luminosities (sorted by luminosity) and depths, and the 500 brightest recombination continuum (sorted by luminosity) luminosities and depths to be printed to the log file at the end of the run. With a value 1 many additional quantities are printed, including ascii tables of continuum luminosities and depths, all line luminosities, along with all useful local quantities such as ion fractions, thermal rates, level populations. Note that these local quantities are printed only at the final step of the model run. With a value of 2 all rates affecting level populations, ionization, heating and cooling internal to the code are also printed. These require significant familiarity with the code. This switch affects only the ascii log file, xout_step.log. The standard fits output files are unaffected by the value of lprint.
