The de-excitation of the fission fragments formed in the neutron-induced fission of 235U, for incident energies from 0.5 to 6.0 MeV, is simulated numerically. Neutrons are emitted sequentially from a Weisskopf spectrum with a temperature set by previous neutron emissions. The complete decay chain is followed until a fission product is formed and no further neutron emission is allowed energetically. Detailed results are obtained, such as the average prompt neutron multiplicity as a function of the fragment mass and the total kinetic energy $\bar{\nu} $(A,TKE) and the multiplicity distribution P(ν). An interpretation in terms of fission modes is proposed.
