PGM LANGUAGE
Introduction The built in programing language referred to as a PGM (Programmable Module) is often used to extend the functionality of SysCAD models. It is used by the General Controller Model and can be edited with any text editor, however NotePad++ with colour syntax hi-lighting is recommended. The PGM syntax is similar to other programing languages like VB.
