 -b[ackground]   = force background processing
 -n[otask]       = disable task processing
 -dlg driver     = set driver
 -t[race][level] = trace execution on stderr
              0  = trace lines (default)
              1  = trace explicit assignments
              2  = trace all assignments

If no program name is specified, the Eloquence language runtime starts interactively in a text based environment. Specifying a program name will execute the program and then exit the language runtime.

The options are:

The -help option displays a brief help text.

-r[ecord] file name
Records every keyboard action performed by the user, and stores it in the specified file. Task switching is disabled in this mode.

-p[lay] file name
Plays back the keyboard action in the specified file, previously recorded using -r file name. Task switching is disabled in this mode.

Suppresses terminal output from a program. It is useful when running a program in background. Task switching is disabled in this mode.

-t[race] [level]
Causes a trace to be performed on the specified program. If no program name is specified, a trace is performed on any program run in the Eloquence environment. Levels available are
  • 0 (default) = trace lines,
  • 1 = trace explicit assignments,
  • 2 = trace all assignments.

Do not enable task switching.

-taskid #
Causes the primary eloqcore to use the specified task id.

Enables SFA mode (profiling). If enabled, utilization information is collected and saved during runtime which may be analyzed with the sfarpt utility.

Suppress banner message.

-dlg server
Connect to the specified dlg server.

Enable NLN mode.

The -debug option enables debugging messages and is normally not used.


Either eloq or eloqcore may be used to start the language runtime. eloq is an interface to eloqcore adding task support.
