The author presents the FORTRAN computer program PDEFIT to estimate parameters in a system of one-dimensional partial differential equations. Using a method of lines, the partial differential equations are discretized and transformed into a set of ordinary differential equations that are solved then by standard ODE or DAE solvers.\parProceeding from given experimental data the distance of these measured data from the solution of the differential equations is to be minimized in different $L$-norms. Some examples are presented to prove the feasibility of the given approach.
