Using the LDI Module#

LDI is a Lattix native format for reading in subsystem and dependency information directly from an XML file. LDI is often a representation that can be generated by parsers. Lattix Architect also provides a utility that can read in an Excel spread sheet specified in either a matrix format (such as the MIT format) or a columnar format and produce an LDI file of that data.

You can read about LDI in the Lattix Architect Module Guide.
