26.5.2 Graph area

The Graph area produces a graph of the current system, together with all its membersThe generic facilities available to all graph views throughout the environment are available here; see Manipulating Graphs for details.

You can operate on systems and files via the context menu, which offers commands such as Concatenate... and Search Files... for systems, and Compile and Print... for files. The system commands are also available in the Works > Systems menu. If no items are selected, the commands apply to the current system, whose name is printed in the System area.

The standard graph layout menu, described in Manipulating Graphs, is available as the Graph submenu of the context menu.

To traverse the system hierarchy, double click a system node in the graph. If the destired parent node is not in the graph, choose Works > Systems > Parent . The parent of all systems defined in the image at any time is called the ROOT-SYSTEM .
