PAGE /PREFIX


An easy way to organize a complex report is to prefix page numbers with a letter. This can be done by means of PAGE /PREFIX. For example,

PAGE 1 /PREFIX:A.

begins a new series of page numbers A.1, A.2, etc.

An index at the beginning of the report would identify the sections. For example,


  report "T&S Book" /page:0
  \         Table of Contents
  \         A. General
  \         B. Hydrostatic Properties
  etc.
 
  page 1 /prefix:A.
  \Vessel Particulars:
  etc.
 
  page 1 /prefix:B.
  HS 1,2, ... 10
  etc.
In this manner a GHS run file can produce an entire complex report automatically.
