Defines an array parameter and its dimensions. Lists the current parameters and abbreviations.Defines a starting wave list. XXVII. Y Commands /YRANGE . XXVI.Controls the centroid or the axis of dynamic rotation. Deletes a parameter (GUI).WSTART .18 Parameter Definition These APDL commands are used to define parameters and their values. Assigns values to user-named parameters. XVAR . Reads parameters from a file. Returns system information to a parameter. XXV.
. *CFOPEN Opens a "command" file. Identifies a macro library file. /PSEARCH Specifies a directory to be searched for "unknown command" macro files. Table 2. and to create user-defined commands. Closes a macro file.*VREAD Reads data and produces an array parameter vector or matrix. Writes a list of commands to a specified file at the same time that the commands are being executed. *CREATE Opens (creates) a macro file. *CFCLOS Closes the "command" file. Writes an output message via the ANSYS message subroutine.20 Abbreviations These APDL commands can be used to define abbreviations for longer commands. *ABBR ABBRES Defines an abbreviation. Mails file to specifed address. Executes a macro file. Reads abbreviations from a coded file. *ULIB *USE Table 2. /RMDIR /TEE Removes (deletes) a directory. *CFWRITE Writes an ANSYS command (or similar string) to a "command" file. /PMACRO Specifies that macro contents be written to the session log file. /DFLAB *END /MAIL /MKDIR *MSG Changes degree of freedom labels for user custom elements.19 Macro Files These APDL commands are used to build and execute command macros.

Applies the absolute value function to array parameters. . or evaluates.
Repeats the previous command. Ends a do-loop and starts the looping action. Conditionally causes commands to be read.22 Process Controls These APDL commands can be used to control the order in which other commands are processed. Separates an intermediate if-then-else block. Introduces a delay before reading the next command. Returns input stream to a higher level.*VSTAT *VWRITE Lists the current specifications for the array parameters. Table 2.
