The pipe bundling concept is simply a way of grouping data pipes together. This is useful for a number of purposes:

The grouping or categorisation of data pipes, for example when multiple related analyses are performed.
In the auto-analyses, as all the data pipes that they spawn are bound together within the original bundle.
In the graphical user interface mode as analysis tabs are linked to specific pipe bundles.

Prompt examples

To set up a model-free analysis data pipe with the name `m5', type:

relax> pipe.create('m5', 'mf')
