Obtaining the Names of Quantities Obtaining the Names of Quantities

Often it is useful to be able to obtain a list of names which are available in the database. In MOSES, one can obtain such a list by issuing the command:


     &NAMES, NAME,  -OPTIONS

where the available options are the options of the &REP_SELECT command and -HARD, or using the string function


     &NAMES(NAME,  :SELECTOR)

The value of NAME defines the category for which names will be listed and it must be one of:

BODIES Active Bodies
CATEGORIES Categories
CLASSES Classes
COMPARTMENTSCompartments
CONNECTORS Connectors
DMARKS Draft Marks
DURATIONS Durations
ELEMENTS Active Elements
ENVIRONMENTSEnvironments
GRIDS Grids
HOLES Holes
INTEREST Interest Points
IN_BODIES Inactive Bodies
IN_ELEMENTS Inactive Elements
IN_PARTS Inactive Parts
I_SPECTRA Input Spectra
LOADGROUPS Load Groups
LSETS Load Sets
MACROS Macros
MAPS Load Maps
M_GROWTH Marine Growth
NAMES Names
NODES Nodes
PANELS Panels
PARTS Active Parts
PIECES Pieces
PI_VIEWS Pi_views
POINTS Points
PROCESSES Processes
PROFILES Profiles
SELECTORS Selection Criteria
SHAPES Shapes
SN SN Curves
SOILS Soils
TVARS Time Variations
VARIABLES Global Variables
S_CASES Structural Solution Cases
R_CASES Structural Report Cases
NG_S_CASES Non Converged Structural Solution Cases

When the &NAMES command is issued, the resulting list will be displayed at the terminal unless the option -HARD is specified. Also, when using the string function the results will be limited to only those names which match :SELECTOR.
