Loading a Deck

To start using EDEMpy, load an existing deck by creating a Deck object and providing the full path to a '.dem' file.

By default, decks are loaded in 'read-only' mode to prevent any accidental changes.

To enable editing, specify mode='w'.

from edempy import Deck
# Read-only mode is the default, but can be specified with 'r'
with Deck("Rock_Box_Tutorial.dem", mode='r') as deck:
...
# To enable editing, use the 'w' flag instead
with Deck("Rock_Box_Tutorial.dem", mode='w') as deck:
# Deck objects contain information about the deck
deck.creatorData
deck.interactionPairs
deck.timestep
deck.numTimesteps
deck.timestepValues
