The configuration file can have eight types of commands, interspersed with blanks and comments. Commands take a number of whitespace-separated arguments. Each parameter is a string, optionally enclosed in double-quotes. Comments start with "#" and extend until the end of line.
The load command registers component libraries. These are dynamically-loaded libraries that contain a collection of related SID component types. Each component type has a unique structured name that describes its type of functionality. Names are typically structured to describe the component's role. For example:
The new command instantiates components of a given type and assigns unique reference names for the new instances. Other commands use these names to reference the component instances.
The set, connect-pin, , disconnect-pin, connect-bus, disconnect-bus, and relate commands configure and manage connections between component instances.
