ReadMODSIM command reads one or more time series from a MODSIM file.
MODSIM is a node/link model used to simulate river basins
(see the MODSIM Input Type Appendix).
Specify a node/link name and data type to read a single time series – if not
specified all time series from the file will be read. An alias can be assigned to each time series.
The following dialog is used to edit the command and illustrates the syntax. When a file is selected, the available data types are listed, based on the file extension (the types are not read from the file).
