Introduction

Program TRC_UPDOWN reads file INFIL in free format, but the columns in the file shall have the same contents as in a trac-, trax- or trax_wdesign- file. Program TRC_UPDOWN then writes the track to UTFIL in opposite order, starting with the last line and ending with the first line. At the same time program TRC_UPDOWN changes the sign for the signals: lateral track center line, curvature and cant. The first column (longitudinal distance) of the track-file will be renumbered, starting at coordinate XSTART.
