The full manual of
**ROSEF Version ****２****.0 User’s guide** (pdf/Word files
of 48 pages) is available. The source
codes written in Fortran90 (a self-decompressing file) will be obtained upon
request to the author by e-mail. It is convenient
to decompress the file in a special file folder since you will have as many as 46
files. The following are the contents of
the manual.
