This is the default setting. No validator will be used with the program.

Using the PC² Validator

The PC² Validator (or Internal Validator) is automatically included with the distribution of PC².

Using an External Validator

The External Validator is a validator (program) that is usually user supplied and uses the International Collegiate Programming Contest Validator Interface Standard for command line parameters and produces standard output. PC² puts the following into the Validator Command line (per the Standard).

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

See Variable Substitutions for more information about the variables on the command line.
