The best solution is to use the scripting interface (based on Jython, a 
Java based implementation of Python). The latest release (see previous 
mail) has some updated examples of this. The most appropriate file is 
pythonnC/Ex5_MultiSimGenerate.py, which can be run with nC.bat -python. 
This runs multiple simulations changing a single parameter each time 
(though any changes can be made to the project between runs). I can send 
on a more detailed API for the commands which can be called in scripts 
(basically the same structure as the corresponding Java methods). The 
source code will be put online in the next few weeks when I get a new 
SVN server set up and figure out about licences.
