Hardware Requirements

The MAPGEN program has been modified (from IBM MVS) to run in a windowing environment on Sun4 and Sun SPARCstations. The input phase requires the windowing environment to display the XView windows, however that portion of the program may be bypassed by reading the namelist file directly, in which case any terminal would do.

The program size (when running on the Sun4 machines) is about 1 megabyte although only a fraction of that needs to be resident at any time. Therefore the amount of available memory should not be a major problem and the program will run even if a much larger program such as INTMAP is also running.
