INTRODUCTION Executing GAMBIT Commands © Fluent Inc., Jul-04 1-1 1. INTRODUCTION GAMBIT is designed for use with a mouse, but most of its operations can also be exe- cuted by means of commands entered from the keyboard or from a journal file. The pur- pose of this manual is to summarize the purpose, format, and use of such commands. 1.1 Executing GAMBIT Commands GAMBIT commands can be executed from either of two sources: Keyboard Journal files To execute a GAMBIT command from the keyboard , you must input the command on the Command line and press Enter . (The Command line is located immediately below the Transcript window on the GAMBIT GUI.) GAMBIT automatically checks the syntax of any keyboard command and returns an error message in the Transcript window if the syntax is incorrect or if the command constitutes an illegal operation. In some cases, such error messages include a list of allowable keywords and/or input variables. Journal files are text files each line of which constitutes a comment or GAMBIT com- mand. The syntax of GAMBIT journal-file commands is identical to that of commands entered by means of the keyboard. For a complete description of GAMBIT journal files and their use, see Section 4.1.6 of the GAMBIT User’s Guide.
