Re: use case.inp file..
You will need to run prostar as you will need to generate a new geometry file if you change the cell and vertex information. In addition it is theoretically possible to hand edit a problem file but not recommended.

Prostar, certainly on unix, has a batch mode using the X driver. A shell script similar to below should achieve your aim of running prostar without having to have manual input.


$STARDIR/bin/prostar -b > output.list << EndofCommands x casename y y

vread casename.vrt cread casename.cel

ifile casename.inp




quit,nosa EndofCommands
