Installing the System
PESTAN

PESTAN is distributed by the EPA's Center for Subsurface Modeling Support (CSMoS) on a single IBM-formatted 5.25 or 3.5 inch diskette. PESTAN version 4.0 includes the following files.

PESTAN.FOR

PESTAN.INP

PESTAN.EXE

ALDCB1.INP

SHOW.EXE

PESTAN.OUT

WHAT.EXE

ALDCB1.OUT

PMENU.BAT

LEACHBTC.DAT

FORMENU1.TXT

LEACHFLX.DAT

FORMENU2.TXT

SOILCON.DAT

CHGNAME.TXT


Prior to installing or implementing the program make a back-up copy of PESTAN using the DISKCOPY command of MS-DOS or PC-DOS. Once completed, copy the PESTAN files to the hard disk in a selected directory. Because the program requires ample storage for the output files, approximately 700KB, the program should be run from the hard disk. In addition, a text editor will have to be defined in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The text editor could be DOS edlin, DOS edit, Norton Classic editor, WordPerfect, or any other commercial editor. Define the text editor in AUTOEXEC.BAT (including its path). For example,

SET EDITOR=C:\WP51\WP

Finally, the ANSI.SYS driver (see your MS-DOS manual) must be installed in the CONFIG.SYS file. This is done by adding a statement such as

DEVICE=C:\DOS\ANSI.SYS

It is important that the correct path for ANSI.SYS is given.
