Program Arguments
The arguments typed into the Arguments field are those that you would have entered if you were starting the program from a shell. If you were directly starting your program under TotalView control, these arguments are those you would enter using the TotalView -a command-line option.
NOTE: If you configured a session without necessary arguments, you can select the Process > Startup Parameters command to relaunch this dialog and enter arguments.
TotalView uses these arguments whenever it starts your program. In contrast, if you need to pass arguments to a starter process such as mpirun or poe, enter those arguments in the Arguments field of the Program Details or Parallel Program Session (for MPI programs) dialogs.
You can enter arguments in two ways:
*Place them on separate lines.
*Separate them with blanks, i.e. spaces.
TotalView will rewrap your entry, so do not be concerned with how it looks in this window.
Here are some special cases:
*If an argument contains embedded blanks, enclose the argument in quotation marks (").
*If an argument contains a quotation mark, precede it with a backslash.
*If an argument contains a backslash character (\), precede it with a second backslash.
*TotalView interprets \n as an embedded newline.
As the information in this page is just text, use standard dialog box editing commands to remove arguments you no longer need. If you delete these arguments before execution begins, TotalView does not use them.
