The revised command and FISH syntax is the first overhaul of the command system since 3DEC was first released in 1988. The new syntax addresses the many inconsistencies and cryptic syntax that crept in over 30 years. In Version 7, all commands and FISH functions follow the pattern: NOUN-VERB-OPTIONS-MODIFIERS-RANGE (for example, BLOCK APPLY VELOCITY RANGE POSITION-X 0 10). As in version 5.2, it is not necessary to type out the entire word. This new system has the following advantages.
To make it easier for experienced users to start using version 7, the following support is provided.
Program documentation provides lists that map 5.2 commands to 7.0 commands (see 3DEC 5.2 to 7.0 Command Mapping). A few examples are shown below.
Similar maps relating 5.2 FISH to 7.0 FISH (see 3DEC 5.2 to 7.0 FISH Mapping) are provided. There will not necessarily be a direct mapping of old to new function arguments nor of return types. 3DEC 7.0 takes advantage, on occasion, of the new types available in FISH (tensors, matrices, etc.) to streamline FISH intrinsics. A few examples are shown below.
An automatic file conversion tool called "3DEC Command Conversion..." is available on the Edit menu.
Before doing the conversion, a back-up copy of the file will be made in a folder called “pre-conversion” in the same directory as the data file. The data file will be converted on-disk and then reloaded into the text editor.
There are cases where the conversion tool cannot translate a version 5.2 command to version 7.0. In these cases, the problematic portion of the command in question will be surrounded by “%%” symbols in the data file and highlighted in orange. When available, explanatory information will appear, commented and also highlighted in orange. These commands require manual editing to complete conversion. TIP: place the cursor in the line with problem command and press F1 to directly access help for that command.
Two examples are demonstrated in the following video.
