Abstract
The FORTRAN program MOPRE is an interactive, user-friendly pre-processor for creating, modifying and validating input files for the 'strip-theory' seakeeping analysis program SHIPMO. An overview introduces the commands and general procedures used in MOPRE to produce the SHIPMO input and defines the record/sub-record structure used by both programs. The MOPRE commands are described in detail, with emphasis on procedures which simplify defining and modifying ship geometry. The general features of the MOPRE interface are described, including: on-line help, abbreviation recognition, error detection, and a Command-Line Editor. Computer requirements are discussed and an optional, operating system-dependent menu-system for controlling execution of MOPRE, SHIPMO and other seakeeping programs is described.
