Nature of problem:
In the framework of the RATIP package, a toolbox supports a variety of (smaller) tasks. It facilitates, for example, the file and data handling in large-scale applications or the interpretation of complex spectra.

Solution method:
The main menu of the UTILITIES lists 16 tasks which can be selected interactively. Information, which is printed during the execution of the program, as well as an interactive dialog about the required input and (selected) output guides the user through the individual tasks.

Unusual features:
A total of 16 different tasks are supported in the present version. Each of these tasks displays a short summary about its function and prompts for the required input and output data interactively. Number of bits in a word: All real variables are parametrized by a selected kind parameter and, thus, can be adapted to any required precision if supported by the compiler. Currently, the kind parameter is set to double precision (two 32-bit words) as used also for other components of the RATIP package [1-3].

Running time:
The program responds promptly for most of the tasks below. The responding time for other tasks, such as the generation of a relativistic pair-correlation basis, strongly depend on the size of the corresponding data files.
