5.1.4 Files used by the STEM Results program

The input data for a STEM model called SIMPLE are saved in a file called simple.dtl (and also in binary form in a file called simple.dtm). When the model is run, STEM stores the subsequent results in a file called simple.smr – the results file – and then automatically loads these results into the STEM Results program. Only a small part of the results file is actually loaded into memory – the actual data are retrieved from the file as required. Results workspaces and views are saved in a file called simple.smw.

The STEM Results program can be customised through the use of configuration files. Usually STEM automatically loads the default configuration from a file called default.cnf, but you can save changes to this file or save/load other configurations with the File/Open and Save Config commands. (In particular, when you first run a model called SIMPLE, STEM will load simple.cnf instead of default.cnf, if you have saved a special configuration for that model.)

The set of results files loaded into STEM (which may be from potentially multiple models), together with the current configuration, can be saved as a results workspace. This workspace can be opened later as a shorthand for opening the results and configuration files separately. Workspace files have the extension .smw.
