GROUP LABEL TO STRINGSName:
It may sometimes be useful to convert these group labels to individual strings to permit greater flexibility in how they are used.
With this command, you define a base name. Then an integer is appended to the base name to create the individual strings. For example, if the base name is S and there are 10 values in the group label variable, this command will create the strings S1, S2, ..., S10.
Currently, a maximum of 999 strings can be created with this command.
where <sbase> is the base name for the strings to be created;
and <ig> is a previously created group label variable name.
The current maximum number of names (i.e., for all parameters, variables, matrices, and functions/strings) is currently set to 50,000.
An error message will be generated if either of these limits is exceeded when running this command.
