.stdfile using Tycho instead of Vem. However, to work with other domains, an icon in Vem is required to represent the corresponding FSM galaxy described in an STD file. To make an icon in Vem for the STD file, first start Tycho from within Ptolemy by pressing
y. Open the file in Tycho and choose
Make Icon....from the
Specialpull-down menu. This will load the FSM galaxy into the Ptolemy kernel and generate an icon with appropriate input/output ports in the specified palette in Vem.
The icon looks like a star (blue outline) but it is actually a galaxy. This may be confusing, but the idea is to avoid using an Octtools handle. There are two different ways to make an icon in Vem:
ptkSetMkStar. The former needs an
OctFacetHandleas one argument and is used for other "Vem" galaxies. However, since the FSM galaxy uses Tycho as the editor instead of Vem, there is no
OctFacetHandle. Therefore the latter (
ptksetMkStar), which uses the star (or galaxy) name instead, is more appropriate.
ikey is pressed on the icon to look inside the galaxy, the corresponding STD file which describes the FSM galaxy will be automatically invoked in Tycho. (Note: if the environment variable
PT_DISPLAYis set to another editor instead of Tycho, it must be unset for the look-inside to work.)
