9.2 Parameter Class

There is a class TParamFile designed to maintain all necessary parameters, which are used at the beginning and during the computation. This class holds all the information read from parameter files or created virtually in memory as one structure. This structure represents a universal mechanism for passing any settings to the system. This class implements methods for effective searching of any values stored in the structure by specifying only a name of the parameter that contains the value. Any initialization of objects and any modifications of their settings is accomplished using methods from the class TParamFile. The source for the TParamFile structure, if not created virtually, is a specially formated text file called parameter file. The idea of the format follows:
