PyGTK GUI command-line parameters

From ASCEND
Jump to: navigation, search

The PyGTK GUI has the following command-line parameters. In particular, note that one can type

ascend mymodel.a4c

And it will launch your model, even if the model is not in the local directory -- it uses the ASCENDLIBRARY environment variable, or failing that, your .ascend.ini settings file, to find the file. And if you have multiple MODELs in your file, try

ascend mybigfile.a4c -m mylittlemodel

Full options:
