- -c file ...
- Compile files into an `intermediate code file'. See section 2.10.
- -o output
- Used in combination with -c or -b to determine output file for compilation.
- Optimised compilation. See current_prolog_flag/2 flag optimise for details.
- -s file
- Use file as a script file. The script file is loaded after the initialisation file specified with the -f file option. Unlike -f file, using -s does not stop Prolog from loading the personal initialisation file.
- -f file
- Use file as initialisation file instead of the default
pl.ini(Windows). `-f none' stops SWI-Prolog from searching for a startup file. This option can be used as an alternative to -s file that stops Prolog from loading the personal initialisation file. See also section 2.2.
- -F script
- Select a startup script from the SWI-Prolog home directory. The script
file is named
<script>.rc. The default script name is deduced from the executable, taking the leading alphanumerical characters (letters, digits and underscore) from the program name. -F none stops looking for a script. Intended for simple management of slightly different versions. One could, for example, write a script
iso.rcand then select ISO compatibility mode using
pl -F isoor make a link from iso-pl to pl.
- -x bootfile
- Boot from bootfile instead of the system's default boot file. A boot file is a file resulting from a Prolog compilation using the -b or -c option or a program saved using qsave_program/[1,2].
- -p alias=path1[:path2 ... ]
- Define a path alias for file_search_path. alias is the name
of the alias, and arg path1 ... is a list of values for the alias. On
Windows the list separator is
. On other systems it is
. A value is either a term of the form alias(value) or pathname. The computed aliases are added to file_search_path/2 using asserta/1, so they precede predefined values for the alias. See file_search_path/2 for details on using this file location mechanism.
