OLYMPUS - a standard control and utility package for initial-value Fortran programs. Nature of problem: A standard methodology has been established for constructing, testing and operating Fortran programs which solve equations describing initial-value problems. Such programs inevitably have many similair administrative tasks to perform and can therefore be given a similar structure. By standardizing this structure and making it as independent as possible of the computer system one can speed up the construction of programs and also facilitate communication between programmers, users and different computational physics groups. OLYMPUS is a control and utility package which is used to support the development and operation of initial-value and other Fortran programs written at Culham, one of which, MEDUSA 1, is described in the following paper.
