-y, --y=Double
Used with value,value-line-segment, and zeros-interval options (default=`0')
--value-file=filename
compute L-function at points specified in file
--value-line-segment
compute L-function along a line segment connecting (x,y) to (X,Y) at number-sample points (default=off)
-X, --X=Double

-Z, --zeros-interval
number of zeros to find in an interval (1/2+ix,1/2+iy) using steps of size stepsize. Use with the x,y, and stepsize options (default=off)
--stepsize=Double
Used with zeros-interval
-d, --derivative=INT
compute derivative. use -d -1 to specify logarithmic derivative.
-e, --elliptic-curve
specify an elliptic curve over Q. Use with the a1 a2 a3 a4 a6 options (default=off)
--a1=rational_number
Used with the elliptic-curve option
--a2=rational_number
Used with the elliptic-curve option
--a3=rational_number
Used with the elliptic-curve option
--a4=rational_number
Used with the elliptic-curve option
--a6=rational_number
Used with the elliptic-curve option
-F, --file-input=filename
input a file with basic L-function data
-u, --url=url
input a web based file with basic L-function data. Specify the url of the file
-i, --interpolate=filename2
interpolate between two L-functions and find their zeros. Should be used in conjunction with file-input
-C, --output-character=STRING if twisting, output the character
(possible values="1", "2" default=`1')
-o, --output-data=number Dirichlet coeffs

output basic data for the underlying L-function

(default=`10')

--verbose=INT
verbosity > 0 outputs extra info (default=`0')
-P, --precision=INT
number digits precision (default=`14')
-S, --sacrifice=INT
number digits to sacrifice (default=`2')
-r, --rank-compute
compute the rank (default=off)
--rank-verify=INT
verify if specified rank is correct
-l, --rank-limit=INT
when doing quadratic twists limit to L-functions with specified rank
-t, --tau
Ramanujan tau L-function (weight 12, full level) (default=off)
-q, --twist-quadratic
twist by fundamental quadratic characters, start <= discriminant <= finish. Use with start and finish options. (default=off)
-s, --start=integer
Used with various twisting options
-f, --finish=integer
Used with various twisting options. Default has finish=start
--twist-quadratic-even
twist by fundamental quadratic characters, even functional eqn, start <= discriminant <= finish (default=off)
-p, --twist-primitive
twist by all primitive Dirichlet characters with start <= conductor <= finish. For L-functions with complex Dirichlet coefficients, conjugate characters are considered equaivalent (default=off)
-A, --twist-all
twist by all Dirichlet characters with start <= conductor <= finish. (default=off)
-a, --twist-all-no-conj-pairs twist by all Dirichlet characters with start <=

conductor <= finish. For L-functions with complex Dirichlet coefficients, conjugate pairs of characters are considered equivalent

(default=off)

-c, --twist-complex-no-conj-pairs

twist by all complex primitive Dirichlet

characters with start <= conductor <= finish. For L-functions with complex Dirichlet coefficients, conjugate pairs of characters are considered equivalent (default=off)

-g, --twist-generic
twist by a generic complex Dirichlet characters with start <= conductor <= finish. (default=off)
-D, --degree=degree
can only be used in conjuction with twist-primitive (?). Select characters of specified degree. Not yet implemented
