The processing code SYMPAL is used to perform the data handling involved in creating a new version of the European Activation File (EAF). The process is handled by different modules of the code in a sequential and orderly manner. The modular code system accesses, translates and processes cross section data from a wide variety of libraries and calculations with nuclear model codes.

This guide describes all aspects of the SYMPAL code, starting with the basic operating environment, compilation of the code and directory structure. Details of how to use SYMPAL to produce an activation library are then explained, along with instructions and examples of how to use each module of the code. Finally details of the Master Parameter File (MPF) format, listings of some parts of the code and the input (ASCII) tables are provided. .
