Startup Options (Professional Version)

 

The professional version of EES provides a number of command line options that facilitate automated operation as described below.

 

 

Hide the Splash Screen

The splash screen that identifies the version of EES user information will not display if a /NOSPLASH parameter is included on the command line, e.g., 

 

c:\ees32\ees.exe  /nosplash

 

 

Starting a Macro

If EES is started from a command line and provided with the name of a Macro file, that Macro file will be opened and executed.  For example,

 

c:\ees32\ees.exe  c:\temp\startEES.emf

 

will start EES, open the startEES.emf macro file and execute the macro instructions.

 

 

Hiding EES at Startup

Include /Hide in the command line to start EES in a hidden form.  For example, 

 

c:\ees32\ees.exe  c:\temp\startEES.emf /hide 

 

will start EES in a hidden state and run the macro file named startEES.emf

 

 

Opening and Solving and EES file

Include /Solve in the command line to start EES, open a specified EES file.  The /Solve parameter will cause EES to open in a hidden state, solve the EES file as if the Solve command were issued and then quit.  This option is only useful is EES produces some output such as with the $EXPORT or $SAVETABLE directives.  Here is an example.  See also the example in which EES calls MATLAB.

 

c:\ees32\ees.exe c:\temp\myEESprogram.ees /solve

 

 

Opening  an EES file and Solving a Parametric Table

Include /SolveTable in the command line to start EES, open a specified EES file.  The /SolveTable parameter will cause EES to open in a hidden state, solve the EES file as if the SolveTable command were issued and then quit.  This option is only useful is EES produces some output such as with the $EXPORT or $SAVETABLE directives.  Here is an example.

 

c:\ees32\ees.exe c:\temp\myEESprogram.ees /solveTable
