Loading command line options from a properties file.

The -F option is a security feature. Under most Unix systems the complete command line is listed when using a ps or similar command revealing login ids and passwords. Using the -F option, login ids and passwords can be stored in a text file. Note that the command line options are not limited to login and password options; any command line option can be stored in the specified text file.

The -F can be used with any pc2 program (See PC² scripts for list of programs).

Example

If this command line was used:

pc2server --nogui --contestpassword cpass --login site1 --password site1pass

One could alternatively use the -F option:

pc2server -F secure.properties

where secure.properties contains

#
# Command line for non GUI server
#
--nogui
--contestpassword cpass
--login site1
--password site1pass

In the file blank lines and lines starting with a # are ignored. Each command line option must be on a different line.
