Input parameters

Eco Lab exports all the members of the object named in the make_model macro to the TCL environment. For example, if the model object is called ecolab, accessor TCL commands for the members are created -- ecolab.sp_sep to access the sp_sep member of the ecolab object. Calling the accessor command with no arguments returns the current value of the member. Calling it with an argument sets the value of the member.

The use_namespace 6.3) command can be used to dump all model commands into global namespace. This unclutters the setting of model parameters considerably.

An alternative technique for getting TCL data into your model is to use a tcl_var. Of the two methods discussed here, the former is recommended.
