Gotchas - unusual information, very rare problems.

External Validator Gotchas

  • Prefixing ./ or .\ onto validator name

If pc2 cannot find the external validator to execute it, the cause may be that the current directory is not in the PATH. To fix this problem add a ./ (in Unix) or a .\ (under Windows) in front of the validator command.


{:validator} {:infile} {:outfile} {:ansfile} {:resfile}


.\{:validator} {:infile} {:outfile} {:ansfile} {:resfile}
