A friend of mine in China (Dr. ZHOU Hui at the China Academy of Building Research) used OCR and converted all the 2.1E documentation to searchable PDF about 9 years ago. These are available at the White Box Technologies Web site [here] (www.whiteboxtechnologies.com/download_DOE21E_documentation.htm) .

Some notes and cautions on the DOE-2 documentation: 1. The 2.1A Engineering Manual is, IMHO, very good but unfortunately has never been updated since it was written in 1982. None of the fundamental stuff has been changed, but don't expect to find anything that was added afterwards. What I like about the Engineering Manual is the one-to-one correspondence with what you actually find in the code - same variable names, same equations, etc. 2. The 2.1A Reference Manuals suffer from the same problem of being out of date, although the 2.1E Supplement does a good job of updating them to 2.1E (1993). 3. The 2.1E BDL Summary is very handy in listing all the input keywords with their defaults and max/min ranges. 4. For documentation on DOE-2.2, please go to the www.doe2.com Web site.
