A subroutine package, GENAS, is presented which enables the user to generate air showers induced by gamma rays, protons, or heavy primaries ranging from 1013 eV to 1020 eV. GENAS is capable of producing air showers very rapidly while keeping the quality of the showers as if they were produced by the full Monte Carlo method. It includes the response of detectors consisting of a plastic scintillator under thin iron and an optional lead sheet. GENAS offers a means for investigating surface-array performance in a quantitative level.
