What is the .OUT File Extension?

.OUT File Extension Description:

The files with the .out file extension are output files generated by 3WayPack, a suite of programs primarily designed to handle three-way data in various forms. Each program has its own main menu, but they all have the same structure.

The three-way analysis programs are written in Fortran90 but the present versions come with a special interface called INTERFACE3 (if3), which is written in Pascal using conventional memory. This interface contains a menu structure that facilitates the running of the program, preparation of the input, and inspecting of the output files with the .out file extension.

From the menu, the options for the program can be specified, the program can be executed, and its output files with the .out file extension can be viewed, printed, and edited. The files with the .out file extension may be further analyzed or processed.

After specifying the options for one of the three-mode programs, the execution of the program starts. If a file with the .out file extension already exists for the present job, a warning will be displayed asking you to confirm whether the old file with the .out file extension can be overwritten. If not, IF3 will make a new output file with the same filename but a different extension such as .ou1, .ou2, and so forth.

The Edit Output option in the Main Menu can only be used if an ASCII editor has been specified in the file IF3.CIG. IF3 calls the editor with the filename of the file with the .out file extension wherein the parameter <jobname>.out can be used as the sole parameter. The Edit Output option also provides exit to DOS, which allows you to use the editor to rename the files with the .out file extension.

A primary output file with the .out file extension contains the following elements: information on the overall fit of the model, components and core array scaled in several ways, input data check, iteration history, initial configurations, normalization factors, fitted data, joint (bi) plots, component transformations, missing data handling and estimation, optional convergence acceleration, optional automatic selection of best analysis, output of HTML files for browsers, distances of points in joint plots, and many other plots.
