> I eventually tracked down a 'problem' to code Thanks for the bug report and thanks for making a simple example for me to debug. I am going to blame the author of the Basic interpreter that I embedded in PHREEQC. If members of the dimensioned array are used on the left- and right-hand sides of the "Let" statement, the result is erroneously put into the member that was used last on the right-hand side, instead of the member specified on the left-hand side. I have patched this little section of the Basic interpreter and it will be corrected in the next release of PHREEQC. Meanwhile, you will have to write around the problem as you did in the example you sent. > Incidentally, where is the best free documentation for the Basic used? I did a quick look on the net and came up with http://members.aol.com/heath8080a/ggs/basic.html. However, the interpreter embedded in PHREEQC does not contain a lot of the functionality listed, but does contain While and wend. The statements allowed in PHREEQC are included in table 9 on page 128-129 of the users manual. > Also the SURF(,) keyword produces a syntax error when Renumbering a USER_PUNCH section. I think PhreeqcI is forgetting to rewrite the SURF function when it renumbers. I'll get Scott to take a look. > I think you and Scott have done a truly magnificent job with PHREEQC and now PHREEQCI. Thanks. I am a fully paid-up member of the Parkhurst-Charlton-Appelo fan club. Thanks, it's nice to hear. > I hope I wasn't too abrupt in my recent query re Kirk's revised As thermo data. I have tried to do my best to put the new data into PHREEQC (and GWB) format but I'm aware that it is easy to get things wrong especially as I had to rework several of the equations and the consistency issue rattles down through the data. Basically I trust you to do it a lot more than I trust myself! The new data significantly change the speciation in reduced systems. Obviously As is a key element of interest at the moment and it would be nice to use the best data as soon as possible. I've just finished teaching a course and have been pretty well tied up. I did talk to Kirk about arsenic and I think it is now up to date in the WATEQ4F database. I do want to include the new data and keep consistent with WATEQ4F, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to it, but I'll write to Jim Ball and see if I can get the data in a convenient form (if you have equations and log K's, I can work from that). BTW, if I can ever get PHAST completed (3D reaction transport), I am going to revisit PHREEQC and try to simplify the numerical method so that it is easier to add new features like metal-organic binding. I will get in touch if I succeed with the numerical method revisions.
