Assignment Statements

Assignment statements in the design script are used to modify an element's attributes. The assignment statement has the form

keyword = expression

where keyword is any of the keywords listed in Assignment Keywords. The data type of the expression must be compatible with the data type of the keyword. For example, assigning a string constant to an integer keyword is illegal. The following examples are legal assignment statements:


ignore = .true.
area_fill = false
style = "dotted"
thickness = weight * 0.05
