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.
More details are available in the guiLiner manual, included in the download.
