WMS:WMS Project Files

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A WMS project file is a file which contains a list of other files. If a project file is selected using the Open command in the File menu, each of the files listed in the project file are opened and read in. This makes it possible to quickly read in several files without having to identify each file individually in the file browser. Most of the files are native-WMS file types, however other files such as DXF, and HEC-1 files can be included in order to maintain all files pertaining to a given project together.

The project file format, with all of the possible options, is shown in s without having to identify each file individually in the file browser. Most of the files are files created by WMS, however other files such as DXF, and HEC-1 files can be included in order to maintain all files pertaining to a given project together.

The project file format, with many of the possible options, is shown in Figure 1. The first line in the file is a PROJECT card that identifies the file as a project file. Each of the other cards has a file type identifier followed by a file name. With few exceptions, the file name should not contain the directory path. Any suffix may be used with the file name, but the default extension names are shown. In general, save the project file in a separate directory since all of the constituent files will also be saved in this directory.
