Inspection Commands

(Redirected from AllShow)

This page describes typescript commands that are used to display Analytica objects and attributes.



Displays all of the user-specified objects in a model, including all their user-specified attributes.

AllShow m

Shows the attributes of module «m», and of all objects contained within «m».

Attribute ident

attribute ident

Typing the name of an attribute followed by the identifier of an object displays the value of the indicated attribute and object. Optionally, the keyword Of can occur between «attribute» and «ident», as in:

attribute Of ident.


definition Time
units Weight
Title Revenue_details



Prints the date and time and information about memory usage.

Lists every identifier in the global namespace. This is a horribly long list you probably don't want to see, although it does provide a way to check to see what identifiers are already in use. Equivalent to List Any.

List k

Displays the identifiers of all objects in the global namespace of a particular kind «k». The possible kinds can be obtained using:

List Object
List "pattern"

Displays all identifiers that match the regular expression «pattern». This can be combined with the object type:

List k "pattern"


List Object
Displays a list of all class types. These are the valid names that can appear as the «k» parameter.
List Command
Displays all typescript commands.
List Decision
Shows all your decision variables
List Chance
Shows all your chance variables
List Index
All user-defined index variables
List Variable
Shows all general variable types. This does not include Chance, Decision, index, etc.
List Function
lists all your user-defined functions
List Attribute
all attributes, both system-defined and user-defined.
List Keyword
Displays a list of all keywords. These are reserved words that cannot be used for identifiers.
List SysVar
Displays all system variables.
List GraphStyleTemplate
Displays the identifiers of all graph style templates.
List "carbon"
Lists all identifiers that contain the word "carbon"
List SysVar "Null|Undef"
Lists all system variables that contains the word "Null" or the word "Undef"
List Function "^Max"
Lists all user-defined functions that start with the letters Max



Displays some basic information about the current edition and release of Analytica that you are using, date it was compiled, some copyright info, and Lumina contact info. Works in ADE also.

PrintTable v

Prints a summary of a result «v», for example showing just the indexes, to typescript.

>PrintTable Health_damage


Profile o

Displays all attributes of an object «o», both user-defined and computed. Primarily of interest to system developers.


Show o

Displays object «o»'s user-specified attributes. In Analytica Enterprise, it also displays the amount of CPU time that has been spent evaluating this object -- the same information viewed from the Performance Profiler.

This is the most commonly used commands within the typescript window for viewing object information.

A more terse display is given by What o, and a more verbose display is printed by Profile o. See also Show.


ShowAskAttribute objectClass

This command takes a single parameter, which is the class of an object (Variable, Chance, Decision, Index, function, Constant, Module, Library, etc). It returns a list of the attributes that should be shown for that object, e.g., [Class, Identifier, Title, units, description, definition, value, outputs, inputs, check]. After you check an attribute from the Attributes dialog (from the Object menu) in Analytica, or toggle this setting using the AskAttribute typescript command, the ShowAskAttribute command provides access to the state of those settings.


Tree o

Displays the inputs of an object (variable, function, etc), the inputs of those inputs, etc. Each line is prefaced with N '+' characters to indicate N generations of ancestry from «o».


>Tree Health_damage
+     Health Damage             (d/yr)            Health_damage = IF Conc > Thresh THEN H_damage_factor*(Conc - Thresh) ELSE 0
++    Health Damage Factor      (d/yr/ug/m^3)     H_damage_factor = Fractiles( [0, 0, 0, .25, .6, 1, 1.5, 2.2, 3, 5, 10]/3M)
++    Concentration             (ug/m^3)          Conc = Baseconc*(1-Reduction)
+++   Emissions Reduction                         Reduction = [0, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 0.95]
+++   Base Concentration        (ug/m^3)          Baseconc = Lognormal(10, 1.5)
++    Threshold                 (ug/m^3)          Thresh = Uniform(0, 10)


What o

Displays a very brief summary of object «o». If «o» is a variable, it prints its identifier, title, units and value. If its value is an array, it prints only the indexes of its value.


Why v

Prints the identifier, title, units and value of variable «v», and of all those variables on which it depends (its inputs). Used for examining why the variable has the value it does.


>Why Health_damage
Health_damage        : Health Damage (d/yr) = Table(Reduction)
Description: The increment in annual death rate per individual from exposure to TXC.
   This is zero if the concentration is less than the health damage factor,~
   otherwise it's the Health Damage Factor time the amount that the Concentration is ~
   above the Threshold.
Health_damage = IF Conc>Thresh THEN H_damage_factor*(Conc - Thresh) ELSE 0
H_damage_factor      : Health Damage Factor (d/yr/ug/m^3) = 333.3n
Conc                 : Concentration (ug/m^3) = Table(Reduction)
Thresh               : Threshold (ug/m^3) = 5



Shows the inputs of all objects in a model. This listing can be very lengthy.
