The Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) has developed versions of the HEC-1 Flood Hydrograph Package and the HEC-2 Water Surface Profiles programs for MS/PC-DOS compatible microcomputers (PC). Typical tasks that are required when using these batch oriented programs include creating, checking and editing input data; executing the program; and summarizing and displaying the results. The HEC has developed a menu driven user interface or shell program to integrate several application programs, an editor and other utility programs to assist the user in accomplishing these tasks. The integrated package includes a program (SUMPO) for creating summary tables of HEC-2 results, a program (PLOT2) that plots cross-sections and water surface profiles, and a PC version of the Corps of Engineers editor (COED), which features full screen editing and on-line help screens and documentation.
