100 GHS Interface

This section covers the GHS interface.  How to actually interact with the program.  Explains the main program window and formatting of GHS commands.  The interface is a combination of buttons and command entries.  Step 1:  learn what all the buttons do.  When I learned GHS strictly from the reference manual, I didn’t even notice the window and buttons.  After taking a training class, I learned that these menus can be extremely helpful.

120 GHS Command Format

The command format is essential.  GHS is a programming language.  Like any programming language, it has syntax:  a specific pattern for how to enter commands and specify values for those commands.  Don’t overlook the importance of this.  I have wasted several days trying to hunt down a bug in a GHS script only to discover that it was a problem with syntax and GHS interpreted the commands wrong.
