Handling results

FrigoSim generates two types of result files, result file and report file. They get their names from the SIM file and the extensions rsl. and rep. respectively.

The result file is a text file with a number of quantities placed in columns. They can easily be imported to spreadsheet programs for further processing or presentation.

The report file is the original output file from early pre-Windows versions of the program. It has been kept for a number of reasons: It produces an output that can be copied to reports as it is. And it receives test output that can be helpful in exploring modelling problems.

The contents of both files are controlled by the Output|Component quantities and Output|Derived quantities menu commands. Note that the dialogue of the first command has a sort mechanism (sorting quantities by type and component) to facilitate making graphs by a spreadsheet program.
