The CIF simulator can produce various forms of output.
The default form of output is to the console. The type of console output to produce, is determined by the Output mode option (General category). The following modes are available:
Error: produces only error output. It is recommended not to use this mode. Use the warning mode instead, if you wish to limit the amount of console output.
Warning: produces error and warning output. Use this mode to be informed about potential problems, while keeping the amount of console output to a minimum.
Normal: produces error, warning, and normal output. This is the default output mode. The information that is printed to the console for normal output can be configured using the Normal output option.
Debug: produces error, warning, normal, and debug output. This mode can be used to print additional debugging information to the console. The information that is printed to the console for normal output can be configured using the Debug output option.
The simulator can thus produce two types of configurable console output:
Besides console output, the simulator also features a powerful and extensible output framework. This framework allows for the addition of output components, such as visualizers. The following output components are currently available:
