Excellent question about whether you must use an Environment file as a base and then modify using TCL, or if you can script a test from start to finish without first creating a .env file. The limitation of Abacus automation is that you cannot configure a complete test from start to finish using only Tcl automation. There are things in the GUI that don't have equivalent functionality available on the API.
Once a test is configured in the GUI and saved, you can run it and modify it using Tcl.
For new users, there is a library of sample scripts for each window/function included in the TCL folder (C:\Abacus 5000\6.22\TCL\Samples).
You will use the ::aba::DatSetList data holder class to set partition and timing parameters.
If there is not an example script in the Samples directory for your desired function, try the Tcl Automation User Guide and the Tcl Automation Reference in C:\Abacus 5000\6.22\MANUAL.
Hope this helps!
