eimsimprep (eimsim-2.4.2) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


As described in the eimsim documentation, the functionality of package eimsim is divided into things that need to be done only once and things which must be done $N$ times for $N$ simulation runs. The `done once' things can be further divided into those things which must be done before the simulation runs, and those things which must be done afterward. The `before' things are gathered into the present task eimsimprep; the `$N$ simulation runs' things are to be found within eimsimbatch; and the `afterward' things are performed within eimsimreduce.

The task eimsimprep does 6 things in sequence, which are described individually in the following subsections.
