About how the  MAD latttice tape output are imported to the lattice data base table:
3
1.  read element by element, the first data word after the type-element name is length of the
4
element and the last data word is s-value. I calculate the s-value by adding  'length'. This give
5
you the s-value at the front face. I forget why I did this way.
6
2.  The first 4 characters of the type-element name is extracted to be the type name. This must have been agreed upon between Dave J. and me, which I hope still stands. You should have a
7
look to see if anything would cause problem in your application.

there is another way to take care the number of digits of s-value. That is to provide an option
11
to write a ascii file(.csv) file for a selected type.
