Re: documentation on building blocks and templates

If you can't find information in the documentation section of our website, we probably don't have documentation yet. What do you want to know?

Re: documentation on building blocks and templates

Blocks are of most immediate interest to me.  I believe these allow a "subprocess" to be represented
as one operator.  The basic functions would be to (a)create/delete a block definition, (b)incorporate a
predefined block in a new process, and (c)navigate a process containing a block by going "into"
the block and then out again.  Thanks,

Re: documentation on building blocks and templates

Building blocks allow you to store one preconfigured operator (e.g. a Subprocess operator with some contents) as a kind of template, that you can insert into another process.
It is a little bit like copy/paste, just that what you copy can be accessed any time again.

If you want to "call" a process from another process, use the Execute Process operator. You can even pass data and macros around.
To pass data: on the inner process, connect the process input ports on the *right* of the process to get input, and connect those on the *left* to pass output to the calling process.
In the outer process, connect the data to the ports as you would do with any other operator.

Hope that helps!
