FALCON (Fast Analysis of Local CONfinement) is a code package for the interpretation of local transport properties of JET plasmas, which uses experimental measurements and physics modelling to solve particle, current, momentum and energy balances. More generally, the code (or parts of it) can provide a flexible tool for testing new models or comparing different diagnostics measurements within a coherent framework. Its modular structure makes it easy to modify for specialised studies, not necessarily related to transport analysis. For this purpose, a number of dummy routines are included in the general code flow chart. This report describes the structure of the code and its physics content, and provides a basic user's manual. The report also gives an overview of the FALCON approach to local transport analysis, and discusses various possible uses of the program.
