TFILE= list of Tables to be output

TFILE= causes the specified Tables to be written into the report output file. It is has no effect on the Output Tables menus.

 

TFILE= file name

file containing details

TFILE = *

in-line list which ends with *

TFILE = ?

opens a Browser window to find the TFILE= file

 

TFILE= contents

Table number, such as

22

All standard subtables for the Table are output. Table 0 is the iteration report

Table and subtable number, such as

3.1

Only the specified subtable is output. Every subtable can be reported individually.

Table and subtable range, such as

23.11-33 (which means 23.11 - 23.33)

All subtables in the specified range of subtables are output

Table and subtable open-ended range, such as

23.11+

21.0+

All subtables numbered equal to, or higher than the specified subtable are output

Control instruction = value, such as

OFILE=report1.txt

All instructions active in the Specification menu dialog box can be included. These instructions become active when Winsteps reaches them in processing TFILE=.

Example 1: In this example, 3 report output files will be written. These include two versions of Table 2.2.

TFILE=*

OFILE=table1report.txt

1  ; output Table 1

OFILE=table2.2report.txt

2.2  ; output Table 2,2

OFILE=table2.2breport.txt

MRANGE=5

2.2  ; output Table 2.2

MRANGE=  ; to cancel the MRANGE=5 instruction

*

Example 2: A DIF subtable is output in a format more suitable for processing by other software

TFILE=*

DIF=$S1W2

BOXSHOW=No

HEADER=No

OFILE=difoutput.txt

30.1

*

 

 

TABLES= selects the tables in a fixed sequence, and prints only one copy. TFILE= allows the analyst to print multiple copies of tables to different specifications. TFILE= specifies the name of an input ASCII file. Each line of the file contains a table number or table number.sub-table and other control parameters, separated by blanks or commas. Unused control values are specified with "-". The list may be entered directly into the control file with TFILE=* (see Example 2).

 

TFILE= Parameters:

Control variable = Value

 

The Control Variables allowed in the Specification Menu dialog box are can be entered here for immediate action.

Example: TITLE="My Report"

Output Table selection: (enter unused parameters with "-" or ".")

TFILE= Table number selection

Table number, for example

15

selects the Table and all its Subtables


Table number.Subtable number

For example:

6.4

selects only the Table's Subtable

 

For each Subtable request, Winsteps regenerates all the required Table information. For example,

TFILE=*

23.3 ; performs Table 23 PCA analysis then reports Table 23.3

23.4 ; performs Table 23 PCA analysis then reports Table 23.4

Table number.Subtable number+

For example:

18.3+

select the specified Subtable and all following Subtables, if any.


6.2, 10.2, 13.2, 14.2, 15.2, 17.2, 18.2, 19.2, 25.2,  26.2

selects the specified Subtable with CHART=Yes


10.3, 13.3, 14.3, 15.3, 25.3,  26.3

selects the specified Subtable with

DISTRACTORS=YES


3.3

STEPT3.NE.'Y'


 

Example 1: The analyst wishes to select and print several tables:

  TFILE=TABLES.TF

 

TABLES.TF is a DOS (ASCII) file with the following lines:

; Table number

Low Range

High Range

Columns per unit

Sort on column

 

2

 

 

 

 

; print Tables 2.1, 2.2, 2.3

10.2

0.5

1.5

 

 

; print Table 10.2 with fit bars at 0.5 and 1.5

; print Table 8 with range -5 to +5 logits

; range -2 to +7 logits, 10 columns per logit

10

 

; print Table 9 again, different range

4

; print Table 15, sorted on column 4 of item name

 

or enter directly into the control file,

 TFILE=*

 2

 10.2

 8 -5 5

 9 -2 7 10

 9 -5 5 10

15 - - - 4

 *

 

Example 2: Analyst wishes to specify on the DOS control line, Table 15 sorted on item name column 4. Values are separated by commas, because blanks act as end-of-line separators.

C:>Winsteps SF.TXT SFO.TXT TFILE=* 15,-,-,-,4 *

 

Example 3: To output the empirical Keyforms in Table 17.3, etc.:

TFILE=*

17.3

*
