Starting the program
guiLiner may be run from the command line or by double clicking on most systems
with a JRE installed (see above). Its behavior when started may be of three types:
- If started with a single argument which is the path to a valid XML file
then guiLiner will immediately start up in user mode.
- If it is started without any arguments (such
as by double-clicking) a dialog will appear which allows you to select an XML
file containing the information on a hosted program.
- If started with more than one argument (usually from a command line), guiLiner
will output a usage message to the console and exit.
If you are a developer and would like users to have a seamless experience
starting guiLiner and running your program you may want to include a script that
starts guiLiner and specifies the XML file directly and instruct users to use it
rather than start guiLiner on its own.
