Coffee Conversation:

We live in an ideological time that proudly assures us that no answers can be given, but there is only power and exploitation and contingency. No proposition is more questionable or less questioned than this.
But it is not true that there are no answers. What is true is that there are many answers we are not prepared to recognize because we have not formulated the proper questions. What is true, and consequently ominous, is that we can choose not to question because we do not want to hear the answer. We do not want to change our lives. And as Plato said, a lie in the soul is the worst of evils.

Subject: [Bldg-sim] Alternative to E+ example file browser

Hi All,

I’ve found the Example files in E+ a very interesting source of information. The attached is an alternative browser to the two html files currently included in the standard E+ installation.


  *   General navigation improvement (e.g. Autofilter, grouping)
  *   Open E+ example file by clicking a button whilst the cell with the named *.idf is highlighted
  *   Jump to the description of highlighted E+ file in the “Object-link” sheet by clicking button whilst cell with named *.idf is highlighted

I can’t get it to automatically apply the weather file corresponding to the example file (I think this is a limitation of starting from the shell).

No error checking, no apologies.

It’s based on the current example file collection available in EnergyPlusV9-2-0.

Let me know what you think
