I would like to use functions from a third party GIS tool in Python to automate a process. Specifically I am looking to automate HEC-GeoRAS functions, but I imagine the process is the same for any third party add-in. This may be really simple, but how do I figure out how to call these functions? I have no problem with native GIS functions since they are well documented by ESRI, but often third party tools have no documentation. Thank you!!!
