Title: model.txt Output Syntax
Post by: briancohan on February 08, 2021, 09:59:35 pm
I'm trying to process information from the model.txt file that gets generated during a simulation to post-process some information. Specifically, I'm trying to figure out which room names in model_rooms.cvs are on which floor, but I'd like to look into other post-processing insights as well.

This file does not appear to be documented in the user guides. Would it be possible to get the names of the parameters exported for each section?

Additionally, would it be possible in future versions to make the records either comma-separated or consistently separated? For example, in the section below, I suspect that the parameters to boundary are aligned with the last two parameters of exit_door and the double space makes it easy enough to parse, however the multiple spaces after door make processing slightly challenging.

[edges]
0: boundary  2352 2353
1: boundary  2352 3083
2: boundary  2353 2354
3: exit_door 377 2351 3083
...
15: door      300 1385 1386
16: boundary  1386 1472

The details of the input file format are in the Pathfinder Technical Reference Manual.
