Displaying options#

pyCIF package is run as an executable through the __main.py__ script.

To display available running options, use the following command:

python -m pycif -h

Available options#

The available options are :

  • def_file (mandatory): defines the path to the configuration Yaml file

  • -h or –help (stand-alone): this displays the available options

  • –debug (optional): activate debugging verbose mode; this is equivalent to setting the verbose parameter to 0 in the configuration Yaml file (see here).

  • –faulhandler (optional): activate the faulthandler python package to track external errors (e.g., in C sub-routines); WARNING, this option slows the computation.
