polymake man page
polymake — convex polytopes and polyhedra
This program provides algorithms that manipulate convex polytopes and polyhedra. When run without arguments, an interactive shell is started.
- Show a help message and exit.
- Print the version number and copyright notice, and exit.
- [--script] [application::]script_file
- Execute the script stored in script_file. If the application prefix is specified, that application is loaded and the script file is looked up in its script directory.
- --script [application::]script_file arguments ...
- Execute the script, passing the arguments in @ARGV.
- --iscript [application::]script_file arguments ...
- Execute the script, which may contain interactive commands.
- Interpret the string as a perl expression.
- Read and execute commands from standard input.
- file PROPERTY | METHOD [ ... ]
- Legacy mode (resembling polymake <= 2.3): Read the object from the data file, print the properties, or run the user methods.
- --touch file [ file ... ]
- Read the files and write them out; useful for converting from older polymake versions.
- -A application_name
- Start with this application, ignoring the $default_application and @start_applications settings.
- Produce some debug output; can be repeated to increase the debug level.
- Verbose output; can be repeated to increase the verbosity level. This is an obsolete option. Use custom variables $Verbose::* to gain more detailed control.
- Rerun the autoconfiguration sections in all rule files.
- --config-path "DIR;..."
- Import settings from global configuration files in the given directories. If the last DIR in the list starts with ~/, use it instead of ~/.polymake to keep the private settings. The default is "user", using only the private configuration located at $POLYMAKE_USER_DIR or ~/.polymake.
- Equivalent to --config-path=none. Don't read any configuration files. Don't try to configure rules automatically. Don't load rule files requiring auto-configuration.
- Equivalent to --config-path=ignore. Don't read any configuration files. Skip auto-configuration routines in the rule files.
- Dry run mode: show the production rules that would be applied to the object, but don't actually run any. This is only applicable in compatibility mode.
- -T sec
- Set a time limit for the execution of production rules. This option currently has no effect.
