New Objects

The objects improve the toolbox in two ways. First, all properties directly related to a given set of data or to a given model (model set) can be stored in a single entity. This entity even has a built-in consistency check, so it is assured that no self-contradiction happens in the object. Second, the toolbox functions can have a much simpler command-line form than before, because less input/output arguments are necessary for their run. These simpler command-line forms work as extensions to the present toolbox, that is, all present toolbox calls work unchanged, but most functions offer a simpler command-line form, described in a related help invoking fdhelp <function-name>.
