Nature of problem:
This program can be used to simulate polarized nucleon-nucleon collisions at high energies. Spins of colliding particles are taken into account. The program allows to calculate cross sections for various processes.

Solution method:
The existing Monte Carlo program PYTHIA 5.7 has been modified to incorporate spin effects. The program incorporates all features of PYTHIA.

Restrictions:
Spins of colliding nucleons must be parallel to the collision axis.

Additional comments:
Reader has to refer to PYTHIA manual for additional details.
