The basic steps for constructing a model consist of:
For beginners to TOOL and multidimensial arrays the process outlined above can be challenging, as it can be hard to visualize how the multidimensional arrays are being constructed and manipulated as objects are created, reorder and mapped into different shapes during the construction of the model's framework as no data is being passed through the model at this point.
However there is an interactive technique that you can use to read data through Documenter for prototyping/testing purposes. This technique is similar to writing an import view, however the tool code is written directly in the procedure box of your Documenter diagram. All of the rules that apply to writing a view are applied here except for the following exceptions and limitations:
