Command Line Arguments

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.

Example:

PingPlotter.exe www.pingplotter.com.pp2

/TRACE

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.

Example:

PingPlotter.exe www.pingplotter.com.pp2 /TRACE

or

PingPlotter.exe /TRACE:www.pingplotter.com

/?
