Announcements Pointwise would like to invite you to a special Gridgen Glyph training course at the 44th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting and Exhibit in Reno, NV. The course is on Sunday, January 8, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Reno Hilton.

Gridgen Glyph is a high-level scripting language built into Gridgen allowing for automation of grid genereration tasks and customized meshing applications. This training course will be composed of both lecture and hands-on sessions. A notebook containing the lectures notes and tutorials will be provided to each attendee.

Training will start with an overview of Tcl, the basis of the Glyph scripting language. Tcl syntax will be described in detail, as will control structures, procedures (user defined functions), lists/arrays, error handling, and other useful features. In-class examples and hands-on exercises will be used to highlight important details. Although designed for introductory scriptwriters, more seasoned Glyph users will learn more about the details of Tcl and get a useful review of Tcl basics.

The training seminar will continue with a session on the application of Tcl to Glyph scriptwriting. There will be an overview of the most useful Glyph commands, and several examples of scripts analyzed in detail. Scripts for initializing Gridgen default settings and user preferences and for automating grid project start-up will also be demonstrated.

The early afternoon session will cover the latest developments and features in Gridgen. The final session of the day reviews Tk, Tcl's graphical toolkit for creating user interfaces. The commands needed to create GUI panels and to make those panels functional will be demonstrated, emphasizing examples directly applicable for use with Gridgen. Attendees will get to try their hand at creating panels with in-class tutorials.
