[ Modes of Input ]
[ Leaving ALADDIN ]
ALADDIN's command line arguments are setup in a very flexible way.
The program can be started by typing ALADDIN, the name of the executable program, followed by zero or more command line arguments. A list of ALADDIN command options can be obtained by typing either
by itself, or
Two modes of operation are supported:
Input from the Keyboard
Input from a File
Command options have the following meaning:
The command ALADDIN must be accompanied by either the -f flag, or the -k flag. The -s flag is optional. Command line options can be typed in arbitrary sequences.
Recommendation : For anything other than the most basic problem, we recommend that you prepare your problem descriptions in an input file. For example, the command
ALADDIN -f input-highway-bridge >! output-highway-bridge
will instruct ALADDIN to read blocks of statements from a file called input-highway-bridge and redirect the program output to a file called output-highway-bridge.
Use of an input file will allow for the incremental solution to a problem.
The command to exit from ALADDIN is
Don't forget the semicolon.
