We present the modified version of the code HFODD which solves the nuclear Skyrme–Hartree–Fock problem using the Cartesian deformed harmonic-oscillator basis. The modified code gives (i) the general parameters for starting point of the iteration, that provides the convergence report (ii) maximum numbers of the HO quanta in three directions, (iii) the vacuum and particle-hole configurations for the case of the parity symmetry, (iv) the corresponding values of the coupling constants in the Skyrme functionals, (v) the average values of the total and intrinsic neutron, proton, and total angular momentum, it (vi) the corresponding values and contributions to the first moment of inertia and (vii) a summary of the energies calculated for the HF state. Items (ii) and (iv) we not obtainable using the original program.
