The documentation within this wiki uses coloring to differ between different type of information. Below, these annotations and colors are described.
If you encounter something like this:
netconvert --visum=MyVisumNet.inp --output-file=MySUMONet.net.xml
you should know that this is a call on the command line. There may be also a '\' at the end of a line. This indicates that you have to continue typing without pressing return (ignoring both the '\' and the following newline). The following example means exactly the same as the one above:
netconvert --visum=MyVisumNet.inp \ --output-file=MySUMONet.net.xml
Command line option names are normally coloured this way. Their values <LIKE THIS>.
XML-elements and attributes are shown like this. Their values, if variable, <LIKE THIS>.
Complete examples of XML-Files are shown like the following:
<myType> <myElem myAttr1="0" myAttr2="0.0"/> <myElem myAttr1="1" myAttr2="-500.0"/> </myType>
Referenced Data Types
- <BOOL>: a boolean value, use "t" or "true" and "f" or "false" for encoding
- <INT>: an integer value, may be negative
- <UINT>: an unsigned integer value, must be >=0
- <FLOAT>: a floating point number
- <TIME>: time, given in seconds; fractions are allowed, e.g. "12.1"
- <STRING>: any string, but use ASCII-characters only
- <ID>: a string which must not contain the following characters: '#'
- <FILE> or <FILENAME>: the (relative or absolute) path to a file; see also #Referenced File Types
- <PATH>: a (a relative or absolute) path (mainly to a folder)
- <COLOR>: a quadruple of floats separated by ',' (<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>), which describe the red, green, blue, and alpha component ranging from 0.0 to 1.0 (the alpha component is optional), alternatively the list may contain integers in the 0-255 range. Please note that the separator must be a comma and there are no spaces allowed. The color may also be defined using a single string with a HTML color code or one of the basic colors ("red", "green", "blue", "yellow", "cyan", "magenta", "black", "white", "grey")
- <2D-POSITION>: two floats separated by ',' (<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>), which describe the x- and the y-offset, respectively
- <2D-BOUNDING_BOX>: four floats separated by ',' (<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>,<FLOAT>), which describe x-minimum, y-minimum, x-maximum, and y-maximum
- <PROJ_DEFINITION>: a string containing the projection definition as used by proj.4; please note that you have to embed the definition string in quotes
Referenced File Types
- <NETWORK_FILE>: a SUMO network file as built by NETGENERATE or NETCONVERT
- <ROUTES_FILE>: a SUMO routes file as built by DUAROUTER or JTRROUTER or by hand
- <TYPE_FILE>: a SUMO edge type file, built by hand or downloaded
- <OSM_FILE>: a OpenStreetMap file as exported from OpenStreetMap
Brackets '[' and ']' indicate that the enclosed information is optional. Brackets '<' and '>' indicate a variable - insert your own value in here.
<SUMO_HOME> is the path you have saved your SUMO-package into.
