Parameter listing in suntans.dat

The main SUNTANS input file is called suntans.dat and contains three columns. The first column contains the name of the variable used in the program while the second column contains its value, and the information after that value is ignored. Lines beginning with # are ignored, while empty lines will cause the program to crash. The SUNTANS executable looks for this file in the directory specified by --datadir=. If this is not specified, then it looks for it in the same directory as the sun executable.
