Displays a list of all currently defined variables in a dialog box.
It contains the variables which have been explicitely defined by
a script command like `def_variable' as well as the results
from implicit declarations (by appending `= VariableName'
to the end of a script line).
Because the value of a variable can change during the script sequence, the display corresponds to the selected process in the script list.
You may call it a snapshot of the variable memory. Selecting a later process may show different results.
The browser window contains the `Apply' button, which applies
(propagates) the currently selected variable down the process
This feature is very convenient when adding new variable definitions.
The process list is scanned for matching process arguments,
which are replaced by the appropriate variable name plus
the child index.
Example: Selecting a variable `HUGO' whose value is 17 will change parameters like 170803 to HUGO(3).
a) The propagation considers index arguments only. It is not possible e.g. to change all occurences of `0.275' to a variable.
b) Since variables can be defined by using the `def_variable' script command or by an implicit definition only, it is not possible to change the values of variables using the browser.
The contents of the list is updated when selecting a different line in the script. You can watch how the variable list changes while selecting different processes.
Shortcut: + shows the browser window.
Displays a dialog box containing a list of processes that refer to the current process.
Usually the processes in the process boxes are labeled P ... C .... When the option View Names is toggled 'on' and a process carries an implicit name definition, this name is shown instead of the P ... part of the label.
