File Information

This function creates McCabe-Thiele Diagrams from various user inputs. It also displays some key distillation parameters such as the reflux and boilup ratios and the feed conditions. Additionally, it determines the total number of EQ stages required and shows the "step-down" process. Also, it performs the infinite reflux (for given concentration) and minimum reflux (for given/calculated feed condition) analyses and plots those data in separate figures. Finally, it creates a simple column diagram illustrating the feed location and number of stages (assumes total condenser and partial reboiler).
