The InputSettings object contains all the information regarding the settings defined in Input program. For instance, this includes the following settings:
For more information, you can run the following command in the command line, e.g.: echo Phase_6.InputSettings
The Reached object contains all the calculation information for a phase including the following:
For more information, you can run the following command in the command line, e.g.: echo Phase_6.Reached
