New- Resets all program variables, including initial conditions to their default program settings. These settings should be identical to the program conditions from when the program was first run.
Open- Allows the user to open a previously saved configuration file. These files should be saved with the default extension *.scc.
Save- Allows the user to save the current program configuration in order to revisit the system at a later session.
Start- Enables the simulations timer which begins execution of the simulation.
Stop- Disables the simulations timer which stops execution of the simulation.
Reset- Resets the particles positions and velocities according to those specified in simulation parameters dialog.
Slower- Slows the simulations timer which slows execution of the simulation.
Faster- Speeds the simulations timer which speeds execution of the simulation.
Fast Forward- Quickly takes data for 100 points and plots it on the screen.
Parameters- Opens the simulation parameters dialog which allows the user to specify the systems conditions, including the initial position and velocity of each particle.
Help- Opens this here text file!
About- Views the About Spring Chain dialog box.
