File Explorer Overview

A specific property under the mapdl class is dedicated for XPL. It’s based on the APDLMath *XPL command and can be used to explore binary files generated from APDL.

All APDL Files are organized the same way, as a tree or records. For example, a binary result file has the structure outlined in the Structure of an APDL Result Figure.
