New user here: Will codes/programs written from Serpent run in Serpent 2.1.31?

I'm working on running a model of a molten salt reactor initially written for Serpent (likely 1.1.7, the base version). Will the program run if I'm importing it to Serpent 2.1.31? Thank you.

First of all, I presume that you mean Serpent 1 inputs. Secondly, it is impossible to say whether the input will run or not without seeing the actual input. The input syntax for Serpent 2 is the same as for Serpent 1. However, there are some Serpent 1 specific options that have not been implemented in Serpent 2. You can try to run the input with Serpent 2 and see what happens.

Gotcha, the syntax was my main concern. I don't think I have any programs that haven't been added to Serpent 2 yet. Thank you
