Processing Model Files

In addition to processing the command line arguments, the first task in coding your simulator is to process a Model File to obtain the input data and the model configuration. The currently supported Model File formats are documented in the SansGUI Model File Format chapter of the SansGUI Reference Manual.

Contents of Model Files

Although the file formats, their syntax and sequences may be different; the contents of Model Files are similar in that they all contain the following information of the models configured by simulation users.

Processing a Model File means to open the file, read and parse the contents, and store the data with the model configuration information in some data structures in the computer memory for further processing. Because external process simulators are executed separately, SansGUI does not control, nor does it impose any restriction on, how the simulator should be implemented in any manner.
