er_print Syntax

The command-line syntax for the er_print utility is:

er_print [ -script script | –command | - | -V ] experiment-list

The options for the er_print utility are:

Read er_print commands entered from the keyboard.

–script script

Read commands from the file script, which contains a list of er_print commands, one per line. If the –script option is not present, er_print reads commands from the terminal or from the command line.

-command [argument]

Process the given command.


Display version information and exit.

Multiple options that appear on the er_print command line are processed in the order they appear. You can mix scripts, hyphens, and explicit commands in any order. The default action if you do not supply any commands or scripts is to enter interactive mode, in which commands are entered from the keyboard. To exit interactive mode type quit or Ctrl-D.

After each command is processed, any error messages or warning messages arising from the processing are printed. You can print summary statistics on the processing with the procstats command.

The commands accepted by the er_print utility are listed in the following sections.

You can abbreviate any command with a shorter string as long as the command is unambiguous. You can split a command into multiple lines by terminating a line with a backslash, \. Any line that ends in \ will have the \ character removed, and the content of the next line appended before the line is parsed. There is no limit, other than available memory, on the number of lines you can use for a command

You must enclose arguments that contain embedded blanks in double quotes. You can split the text inside the quotes across lines.
