Version 5 Manual
Command Line Arguments
Note: the information in this section is specific to the Windows version of PingPlotter.
You can have PingPlotter do a few things automatically on startup by specifying command line parameters. You can put these parameters in a shortcut - or enter them from a DOS command line window.
PingPlotter.exe [File to Load] [/TRACE:[Address To Trace]]
Loading a file at startup
If you enter a parameter without a / on it, PingPlotter will try and find a file by this name - and load it if it's found.
This option will start tracing automatically when PingPlotter loads. If use the option to load a save file on startup, then tracing will begin to this address. Otherwise, Add a colon (:) and the IP Address or server name you want to trace to.
PingPlotter.exe www.pingplotter.com.pp2 /TRACE
