The extractor editor is used to identify the quantity of interest to be extracted from an ascii output file of a 3rd party solver. The main editor window presents the selected output file in a text editor, opened with read-only access. The user can then define the positions in the file, where the quantity of interests can be found.
Definition of a Response
An anchor is an identification string which is used to locate the position of a certain quantity of interest. It is defined by first selecting a reference string in the editor window. Then, a right mouse click will allow to add an anchor to the selected string through a context menu.
|A response is defined by selecting a numerical value in the output file. This numerical value is the quantity of interest to be retrieved at the end of each simulation. Once the location is defined, a right click will open a context menu which allows to define the response.|
|All the anchors and responses defined are summarized in the outline view. These can be easily accessed using this outline. A right click on a response or an anchor, either from the outline or from the editor window, will invoke a context menu that allow to delete the element or to modify its properties.|
