Name the response block, helpful when there are multiple


This keyword is related to the topics:


Alias: none

Argument(s): STRING

Default: use of last responses parsed


The optional block identifier id_responses specifies a string to uniquely identify a particular responses specification (typically used when there are multiple present). A model can then specify or point to this response set by specifying the same string in its responses_pointer specification. For example, a model whose specification contains responses_pointer = 'R1' will use a responses set with id_responses = 'R1'.

If the id_responses specification is omitted, a particular responses specification will be used by a model only if that model omits specifying a responses_pointer and if the responses set was the last set parsed (or is the only set parsed). In common practice, if only one responses set exists, then id_responses can be safely omitted from the responses specification and responses_pointer can be omitted from the model specification(s), since there is no potential for ambiguity in this case.
