JSBSim ā€” standalone version of the JSBSim open source flight dynamics model

Synopsis

JSBSim <script filename> <output filenames> <options>

Description

JSBSim is a standalone version of the JSBSim open source flight dynamics model library that, given a script file, runs the simulation and outputs the results to one or more files.

Options

--help

Display usage information and exit.

--version

Display the JSBSim version number and exit.

--outputlogfile=filename

Output the processed data to filename.

--logdirectivefile=filename

Use the data logging directives specified in filename. This option may be specified multiple times.

--root=path

Use path as the JSBSim root directory (the directory where the aircraft model resides, containing the aircraft, engine... subdirectories).

--aircraft=filename

Use the aircraft model specified in filename.

--script=filename

Run the simulation script specified in filename.

This option is incompatible with --catalog.

--realtime

Run the simulation in actual real world time.

--nice[=sleep period]

Reduce CPU usage by pausing the simulation between frames for sleep period nanoseconds. If sleep period is not given, it is set to 0.01 nanoseconds.

--nohighlight

Do not colorize the output.

--suspend

Suspend the simulation after initializing it.

--initfile=filename

Use the initialization file filename.

--catalog[=aircraft]

Print all properties for the aircraft model (aircraft, if the model name is passed as an argument, or for the model loaded via the initialization file).

This option is incompatible with --script.

--property=name=value

Set the property named name to value.

--simulation-rate=rate

Set the simulation rate (dT) to rate. If rate is less than 1, it is interpreted as a time step size in seconds; otherwise, it is interpreted as a rate in Hertz.

--end=time

Set the simulation end time to time.

Exit Status

JSBSim exits with 0 on success, with 1 if the syntax of the command-line arguments is wrong or an error occurs.
