Linking to External Models

GoldSim Quick Tour (12 of 23)

If GoldSim's built-in elements or a dynamically-linked spreadsheet are not sufficient for representing a particular aspect of your model, you can dynamically link an external computer program (add a DLL) directly to GoldSim. You must specify the parameters (outputs of existing GoldSim elements) that you wish to send to the external program, and the parameters that the external program will return to, and make available within, GoldSim.

In most cases, you need to only make minor modifications to the external program code to which you want to link in order for it to communicate with (i.e., be dynamically called by) GoldSim.

Note that this ability greatly increases the power and flexibility of GoldSim, allowing nearly any program to be dynamically linked into the dynamic, probabilistic and highly graphical GoldSim framework.
