To get a simulation running in 20-sim, the data stored in various files may be needed:
|•||.txt: data files (fileinput)|
|•||.bmp: bitmap files (for use in 3D Animation)|
|•||.dll: external dll-files (user defined external functions)|
You can pack all these files into one zip-file, using the Pack command from the File menu. With this command 20-sim will check all the files that are used and store them into a single zip-file. This option is useful for archiving and sending models by e-mail.
|1.||When the Pack command is clicked, a Save As dialog appears asking you to enter a name. Always save with the default extension .emxz because 20-sim uses this extension to recognize packed files.|
After the Save As dialog, a 20-sim Pack dialog appears, showing the collected files. In this dialog you can select the files that should be packed.
|2.|| Select the files that should be packed and click the OK button.|
You can open Packed Files using the Unpack command from the File menu.
|1.||When the Unpack command is clicked, an Open dialog appears asking you open a file. Open a file with the extension .emxz because 20-sim uses this extension to recognize packed files.|
After the Open dialog, a 20-sim Unpack dialog appears. In this dialog you can see the file that you have selected to unpack and you can choose the method of unpacking.
|2.||If you want to unpack all files and put them in their original location, select the option Unpack with full path.|
|3.||If you want to unpack all files and to a specific directory, select the option Unpack to directory.|
|4.||Select Keep Relative Paths if you want to keep the original folder structure.|
