Paper Abstract

Opto-mechanical systems which are entered into APART for straylight analysis frequently start out as models on CODE-V. A translator has been coded in FORTRAN which will create the commands for a program one input file in APART based on an existing optical model in CODE-V. Examples of successful translations are presented along with their respective input and output data. Even more interesting are optical models which lead to imperfect translations. Although easily corrected, these cases are used to demonstrate almost insurmountable differences between CODE-V and APART in the definition of the tilts and decenters of their optical entities. In view of the small amount of time required to correct translation errors, there is little benefit in trying to create a smarter translator.
