Basic format of ORCHESTRA input files

  1. Define a line starting with “Var:” with a  number of input variables.
  2. Define subsequent lines stating with “Data:”  with numerical values for each of the variables, and in the same order as the “Var”  line:
Var:      pH          Ca+2.tot    CO3-2.tot
Data:      7.1        1.23e-2        1.1e-2
Data:      7.5        3.57e-2        3.8e-2

The text and numerical fields are separated by tabs or spaces, which makes it easy to paste Excel data.
