3.3.6. STARTING WITH AN INPUT FILE

next, previous Section / Table of Contents / Index Once you have created a structure input file for BALSAC, e.g. named file.in, there are three ways to load it in BALSAC (a) You can restart BALSAC with input file from the command line using balsac -l file.in (LATTICE session) or balsac -c file.in (CLUSTER session) (b) You can start the appropriate BALSAC session from the command line using balsac -l (LATTICE session) or balsac -c (CLUSTER session) Then you select file input [F] in the startup menu and answer the prompt Input file name ("+"=def,"-"=esc): by "file.in" + [enter]. (c) You can select file input [I] in the BALSAC main option menus and answer the above prompt by "file.in" + [enter]. In all three cases BALSAC loads the input file and moves to the main option menu (BALSAC/CLUSTER sessions) or runs by itself completing all interactive options defined in the input file until it reaches the last option flag after which it moves to the main option menu (BALSAC/LATTICE sessions). Further details concerning BALSAC/LATTICE batch runs are interesting only to advanced users and are found in Secs. 3.4, 6.2.11, 6.4.1-2. next, previous Section / Table of Contents / Index
