Numerical calculations are performed on models included in the package, or any model formulated by the user and easily encoded (a few lines with no compilation necessary). The Java graphical user interface provides fast generation of graphical data of good quality, which can be saved as .png files. Hard computational tasks are delegated to a separate, small C library.
