Sigmac Utilities

SIGMAC Utilities are programs written in the Sigmac language that are designed to perform specific utility functions. They are designed to be called by other sigmac programs to perform their function and/or return a value. While intended to be called by other Sigmac programs, these utilities also function stand-alone. They often use global variables to set or return a value to the calling Sigmac. There are currently 56 Sigmac Utilities.

For each Sigmac Utility the documentation provides a Description of the utility, the Level of the sigmac, the Syntax of the utility, a list of Global Variables used, a list of Arguments (i.e. prompts), an Example use of the utility, and Notes or other information which is helpful in using the utility.

Sigmac Utility documentation is in PDF format which may be viewed on-line or downloaded as needed. Selecting the link will open the document PDF in a new browser tab. Right-click on the link and select "Save As" to download the PDF. Shift-click will open the PDF in a new browser window.
