-i level Interactivity - sets the level of interactivity for the program. Options are as follows: [The numerical values are the values that need to be given. Hopefully I will soon add support for inputting the macro versions]
|-1||LOGFILE||send all messages to a log file.
|0||AWAY||display messages, make default choices, don't ask for user input.
|1||VITAL||only request user input when absolutely necessary.
|2||PRESENT||request user input whenever it may be helpful
to do so.
|3||ALL||request user input on all irregularities, even
when no input would usually be expected.
|32||START||Perform all file loading and parsing
operations at the start of execution, and prompt for user input at
this time. Do not prompt for user input once optimisation has started.
|33||STARTCHECK||Like START, but print a message
indicating when the optimisation is ready to start.
-D level Debug level - controls the amount of debuging information output. The following options are available: [The numerical values are the values that need to be given. Hopefully I will soon add support for inputting the macro versions]
|-1||SILENCE||No Debugging or even status updates displayed.
|0||NODEBUG||Appropriate for most users. This provides
basic status updates indicating the progress of the program. This
should be sufficient to indicate whether the program is progressing
normally. If a problem occurs, the program can be rerun with a higher
debugging level to identify the problem.
|1||BASICDEBUG||Gives basic debugging output. May be
helpful if something goes wrong. Might identify file format problems
or similar things that may be fixed easily by the user.
|2||FULLDEBUG||Mostly only useful for developing Cold, or
for users who want to extend Cold with their own code. if you want to
send a bug report, please include the output from the command run with
Numbers greater than 2 default to 2, so running with -D3 is also OK, and will allow for any later extensions to the debugging options.
-q [Not yet implemented] quiet - does not print any information about the status of the program - just outputs the desired information at the end. This can be achieved with -D -1.
-v [Not yet implemented] verbose - provides a lot of information about the current state of the program. Useful for debugging. This can be achieved with -D 2
--showeverysite number controls the status display. When calculating a hessian, the program will print information about which site it is currently working on. The value number controls how often the program prints this message. If number is larger than the total number of sites, then the program never displays the message.
