Is there a program that converts Tcl into PY files?

Post by YizheHe » Thu Jun 11, 2020 10:49 pm

Is there a program like ETO that can convert Tcl on openSees to corresponding Py file?I didn't have to go back to modeling in Python, which would have been cumbersome.Thank you

Maybe someone wants to write this software?This makes openSeesPy a lot easier. There are many applications like SAP2000 and ETAPS that convert models to OpenSees models.We can save a lot of modeling time.

This script works, but only if the Tcl file defines everything line by line, i.e., without loops, conditional statements, or variable substitutions.

I was actually wondering the exact opposite... is there any way to recover an equivalent .tcl file from an openseespy file?

Why in the world would you want to do that? hahaha

It should be straightforward to reverse the Python script to go OpenSeesPy to OpenSeesTcl.
