8.2 Using the .EXE-Version

$\rightarrow $ https://www.concrete-fem.com

A zipped ConFemAll.exe is provided for download https://www.concrete-fem.com/download/. This expands a directory ConFem* with a windows batch script Run.bat . A double click should start ComFemAll.exe which is a wrapper for all modules. Echo lines contain examples for the prompt requests. Echo lines may be edited for customized requirements. Cut and paste of echo lines avoids annoying typing errors.

Working manually through prompts can be avoided with the windows powershell (PS). It allows that prompts of programs are fed by files. PS may again be invoked by a windows batch script, see PSRun.bat. This feeds the content of – name is arbitrary – in.txt to ConFem. Each line of in.txt but the last corresponds to a prompt response. The last line may be an arbitrary character or empty line. The echo is redirected into a log-file by PSRun.bat.

ConFem calls may be stacked within PSRun.bat to initiate a number of runs, e.g. for a parameter study, requiring a corresponding number of prompt input files. This stacking is executed one after the other.
