SweepMe! can be controlled via command line by handing over command line options.


Command line showing the syntax to open SweepMe! with additional options

Open a command line and type in the following line:

SweepMe!.exe -setting="test.set" -user="first last name" -folder="test2" -file="test1" -r -s -c

SweepMe! will be started by loading the setting test.set from the setting folder. The user is set to first last name if available in the list of users. Folder and file are set to test2 and test1, respectively. After start of SweepMe!, the measurement will automatically run (-r), save the data (-s), and close the program afterwards (-c). Probably, you have to modify some of the commannd line options to get the example working.

Batch processing

By using batch files, SweepMe! can be started multiple times to perform different measurements, which have previously been configured via a setting file. In that way, you can easily insert further commands between consecutive calls of SweepMe!, e.g. a time to stop or a call of another script evaluating some data.
