Nature of problem:
The nature of the physical problem is a calculation of the inclusive x-spectra of the secondary particles in p-p interactions, based on the quark-gluon string model.

Solution method:
The method of solution is a convolution of the quark structure functions with the fragmentation functions. Due to the singularities we use a standard procedure TAMORI (E. De Doncker and R. Piessens. Computing 17(1976)256), which performs the integration with desirable precision.

Restrictions:
Restrictions on the applicability of the program is the energy range from 19.7 GeV up to 540 GeV where we have verified the energy conservation laws.

Running time:
The running time is not longer than 2 minutes on the above mentioned computer.
