Input File

The -file option allows you to specify command line parameters in a text file and feed that to the command line program.

The file can be specified in any location along the command line, but it is processed in the order that it appears and may affect command line options before or after it. You can specify multiple -file commands (followed by file names) and files can also contain -f parameters. Parameters can appear on multiple lines.

Use the # character to comment out a line.

If a file contains another -file parameter, recursion usage will be checked. This means that a file cannot have a -file parameter for the same file referenced anywhere in the same processing set.

Files can be in the following formats: UTF-8, UTF-16, or Unicode.

Example 1: FileA.txt

# Execute my script
-script MyScript
# Change the environment and run again
-environment MyEnvironment
-script MyScript

Example 2: FileB.txt

# Include contents of FileA.txt, twice
-file FileA.txt

# Reset the playback environment

# Include it again
-file FileA.txt
