parsav

Mapdl.parsav(lab='', fname='', ext='', **kwargs)

Writes parameters to a file.

APDL Command: PARSAV

Parameters
lab

Write operation:

  • 'SCALAR' : Write only scalar parameters (default).

  • 'ALL' : Write scalar and array parameters. Parameters may be numeric or alphanumeric.

fname

File name and directory path (248 characters maximum, including the characters needed for the directory path). An unspecified directory path defaults to the working directory; in this case, you can use all 248 characters for the file name.

ext

Filename extension (eight-character maximum).

Notes

Writes the current parameters to a coded file. Previous parameters on this file, if any, will be overwritten. The parameter file may be read with the PARRES command.

PARSAV/PARRES operations truncate some long decimal strings, and can cause differing values in your solution data when other operations are performed. A good practice is to limit the number of decimal places you will use before and after these operations.

This command is valid in any processor.
