Crux parameter files


A file containing parameters and their arguments passed to a crux program to control various aspects of execution. Every command-line option and many additional options can be read from a parameter file. If an option is specified in a file and on the command line, the command line value will be used.


<program name> --parameter-file <file name> [<argument>+]


The parameter file can contain parameter lines, comment lines and blank lines. Parameter lines are name-value pairs separated by an equal sign, '=' with no spaces in between. Comment lines must begin with '#'. Blank lines should contain no spaces or tabs before the newline.

Here is a sample parameter file containing the default values for every parameter/option available to all crux programs.
