The ADD Function from the Control Model Application (produces SWFSCRIPT)
The Duct Temperature Sensor from the Plant Model Application
An attribute file is a program module that performs the function
represented by a symbol. The language used in the generated program
is determined by the language in the attribute files. The association
of a symbol with it's attribute file is done through the attribute
file name. As an example the attribute file for symbol RCFAN.BMP would
have RCFAN.ATR as it's name. The attribute files are standard ASCII
files that utilize an embedded code to control program assembly,
instance specific code, and interconnectivity. There is a maximum of
1000 lines allowed in an attribute file. Each line in an attribute file
starts with a hyphen `-'. The next character is either a space or the
start of a command. The number of spaces between the hyphen and the
command start is the `start of line offset'. It is utilized with the
-I `IF', - E `END IF' construct to provide conditional execution
of the offset commands. The SWFTEC Graphic Program Generator
Help files contain the complete attribute file language for developing your own applications.
Graphic Program Generator diagrams are saved as ASCII Text files which specify the
locations on the diagram of text and symbols and the symbol set used in the diagram. These
files are very compact. The diagrams can also be saved as *.BMP files for use in other
applications such as in the Graphic User Interface and printed for documentation.

We encourage OEMs to develope attribute and symbol file sets for their own products and
SWFTEC will work with them to deliver a complete solution to their customers.
The price for the SWFTEC Graphic Program Generator software is $75.00 USD without
an application attribute file set and $100.00 USD with an application attribute file set.
Both versions include the Symbol Packer utility for making your own symbol sets from *.bmp files
and come with example symbols sets.
