#6: How to Use the GHS Executive
The Executive "wizard" is a handy way to interact with GHS or BHS.
Whether you prefer to use the mouse pointer or the keyboard it
can reduce motions and save time.
Selecting a project
The Executive can help you navigate to a project folder by pressing the
Project button. If you prefer to use the main Project pulldown menu,
simply close the Executive window and reopen it after your project
selection is complete. Reopening the executive is quick: in the
Wizard menu it's the first item.
Editing and Executing Run Files
One keystroke or mouse-click is all it takes to go into a run-file
editing session (Edit button). After editing is complete it takes only
one keystroke or mouse-click to initiate the run (Run button).
Directly Executing Commands
Most commands can be typed directly into the Executive's Command
line and they're acted on immediately when you press Enter or
the Enter button. A short history of prior commands is kept in
the adjacent box to the right and they can be re-executed from there.
The Help button opens a window you can use to familiarize yourself
with basic concepts or to look up detailed documentation. It also includes
a button to avoid having the Executive appear at program startup:
How to Avoid the Executive
In the Executive Help window, click the Off button to keep the Executive
from appearing automatically at program startup. You can get the Executive
to appear at any time via the Wizard pulldown menu. But it will no longer
appear automatically unless you restore the auto mode by pressing the
Auto button in the Executive Help window.
Other Executive Features
There are many things you can get done through the Executive perhaps a
little quicker and easier than by using other means. A little time taken
to explore them will be more enlightening than reading about them here.
What Is the Executive?
Essentially the Executive, like all GHS wizards, is a run file.
