(New or interesting aspects of GHS that you may not know about)


"Less is more" was never claimed in the pursuit of accurate numerical integration. But when times of station sparsity call for corrective action, you have a few options.

In Part Maker, use the FILL command (or SPACING statement in a CREATE command if defining a new part):


FILL (hull\hull.c) 5

WRITE theseus.gf1

Or, in Section Editor, use FILL:

And such is the state of frustration, when we fear what we have filled in our haste can't be un-filled. And we fret, and we fret, until (with great elation) we find:

MC theseus.gf1 theseus.gf2 /MINGAP:2.5

...and now we are fulfilled.

(For those in Section Editor with less propensity for the dramatic, use Ctrl-U.)
