 +=== 8.5.3. The LIMWAC user subroutine ===
 +It should be reminded that the spectrum is discretised over both frequencies and directions and that it is a
 +relative spectrum, i.e. expressed in a coordinate system that moves with the current.
 +The subroutine LIMWAC, in its original version, allows to impose the spectrum components at each point of
 +a boundary with a prescribed value. The spectrum components are calculated from the parameters specified
 +in the CAS file (see section 7.2.1). This subroutine, however, can easily be modified to specify e.g. nonhomogeneous
 +(in space) boundary conditions. When such specific boundary conditions are required, these
 +will ideally be incorporated in the user part provided in the code of the LIMWAC procedure. The keyword

 +=== 8.6.1. Modification of bottom topography: CORFON subroutine ===
 +The seabed levels can be modified in two different ways, as already stated in section 7.5.
 +The seabed levels can be modifed at the beginning of the computation using the CORFON subroutine, which
 +is called once at the beginning of the computation. This subroutine allows the value of the ZF variable to be
 +modified at each mesh point. For this purpose, a number of variables such as, for instance, the point
 +coordinates,​ the element area values, the connectivity table, etc., are provided.
 +By default, the CORFON subroutine performs the same number of bottom smoothing iterations as LISFON,
 +i.e. the same value as specified by the integer keyword BOTTOM SMOOTHINGS.
 +Note that the CORFON subroutine is not called in case the computation is initialized with the result of a
 +former TOMAWAC run (“hot start”).
 +This subroutine is part of the TELEMAC-2D library and is listed in APPENDIX 2.
 +=== 8.6.2. Modifying the co-ordinates:​ CORRXY subroutine ===
 +TOMAWAC allows the mesh point co-ordinates to be modified at the beginning of the computation,​ so that
 +an up-scaling (switching from a small scale model to a full-size model), a rotation or a translation can be
 +Such changes are made using the CORRXY subroutine from the BIEF library, which is called in at the
 +beginning of the computation. This subroutine is void by default and provides, in the form of a comment, an example of programming relevant to a change of scale and origin. It is part of the TELEMAC-2D library and
 +is listed in APPENDIX 2.
 +=== 8.6.3. Operations on vectors: OV subroutine ===
 +The BIEF library has a range of very useful subroutines including, in particular, subroutines for operations on
 +vectors. A number of relations have been programmed so that loops can be replaced by a mere procedure
 +The syntax is as follows:
 +Where OP is a string of exactly 8 digits that is indicative of the operation about to be performed on the X, Y,
 +Z vectors and the constant C. The result is the vector X.
 +  : CALL OV('​X=X+Y ', X, Y, Z, C, NPOIN)
 +  : Y is added to X, the result will be stored in X.
 +A full list of available operations are given in the Guide to programming in the Telemac system version 6.0.
