Nature of problem:
We describe the event generator DJANGO6, which simulates deep inelastic lepton-proton scattering including both QED and QCD radiative effects. DJANGO6 is an interface of the programs HERACLES 4.4 and LEPTO 6.1. The LUND-string fragmentation is used to obtain the complete hadronic final state. DJANGO6 is an update which now also allows us to use the matrix element options of LEPTO, which means that non-logarithmic corrections OF O(alphas) can be taken into account.

Running time:
Depending on the actual requirements such as parameters, requested contributions, kinematical limits; e.g. in the full DIS HERA kinematic region, the generation of 1000 radiative events with the (ME+PS) option of LEPTO, including hadronization, takes 80 seconds CPU ON A VAX 9000-210.
