4.3.6 Model Description

The DESCRIPTION descriptor is used to give a short description to a model. The description is the content between the DESCRIPTION descriptor and the next descriptor. Empty lines are automatically removed.

If the default textual interface or the default curses interface of SVM is used, the description (if specified in the model) is printed to the console. If the default graphical interface is used, the description is displayed in the output box of the main window. In the simulation/execution environment, the description is a string stored in eventhandler.description. It may be used by the actions of the model.
