The TABLEDEF input statement

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The TABLEDEF input statement is similar to the TABLE input function, but can be used to directly define one or several parameters from a multi-valued table file.


The format is


TABLEDEF('filename' , name1 { , name2 , ... } )


Whereas in the TABLE statement the additional arguments are coordinate reassignments, in the TABLEDEF statement the additional arguments are the names to be defined and associated with the table data.  The TABLEDEF statement is not able to redefine the names of the table coordinates, and the names in the table file must be those of values known to FlexPDE at the time of reading the table.


The TABLEDEF statement is syntactically parallel to the TRANSFER statement.


TABLEDEF may optionally be preceded by TABLE modifiers.
