LONG COMMAND LINES / CONFIGURATION FILES

PPWIZARD has no restrictions on the length of a command line although your operating system is likely to (about 126 characters in WIN95/98/ME).

PPWIZARD supports storing configuration information or command line parameters in the following ways:

  1. In List File
    Using the /List switch you can easily retrieve command line options from a configuration file. A major advantage of a "list" file is that you do not have to handle characters such as '>' as you would have to if it came from the command line.

    Note that ppwizard will automatically read in any file named "ppwizard.ppw" (default project file).

  2. In Project Files
    This is very similar to /List processing but with a simpler syntax and some inbuilt processing.

  3. Environment Variables
    Using the /GetEnv switch you can easily retrieve previously stored command line options (possibly set up in "config.sys" or windows registry).

  4. The "PPWIZARD_OPTIONS" environment variable is intended more for updating or adding to the inbuilt PPWIZARD defaults rather than general command line processing.
