* SiSi is an environment for simulations. A programmer could include many useful features of SiSi, such as a comfortable fileparser to read simulation parameters from files, data structures like strings, lists, tables and functions like round, gaussian distributed random numbers, ....
With XSiSi there is a graphical user interface available for manipulating parameterfiles. So simulation programmers could make their simulations transparent to other users. The great advantage is, that this users doesn't have to understand the programming side of the simulation environment. They can use the simulation environment by manipulating the parameters with XSiSi.
Now, it is very easy for the simulation programmer to include the SiSi-Library. One has only to add TWO lines to the source code (One for include SiSi header file and the other to call SiSi to read the parameter files). After, all variables are available as global.
