GHS FAQ

Question QA011 :
What is a Run File ?

Answer :
The Run File is a very simple idea. It is a text file which contains commands. Whatever you would type directly, you can put in a Run File. For example, make a file named TEST.RF which contains the following:
READ FV.GF
REPORT FV.PF
HS 5, 6, 7
QUIT
 Then at the DOS prompt enter,
GHS TEST.RF
 You can do the same thing with Part Maker. The pattern is as follows:
READ hull.gf
CREATE tank1
...
/
CREATE tank2
...
/
...
DISPLAY
WRITE complete.gf
QUIT
 Put commands like these on a file named TEST.PM, then at the DOS prompt enter,
PM TEST.PM
