TOPCOM — triangulations of point configurations and oriented matroids

Description

TOPCOM programs share a command-line parsing library. Therefore, all TOPCOM programs accept the following options. Note that some options are not relevant to all TOPCOM programs.

Options concerning shell output:

-h, --help
summarize the program options.
-v
write verbose information to stderr.
--reportfrequency [N]
report every Nth new triangulation.
-d
write debug information to stderr.
--heights
write height vectors for triangulations to stdout (implies --regular).
--flips
write flips as pairs of triangulation IDs to stdout.

Options for checking input:

--checktriang
check any given triangulations for correctness.

Options for reporting properties of discovered triangulations:

--flipdeficiency
report flip deficiency in triangulations to stderr.
--checkfrequency [N]
check for regularity every Nth triangulation and exit if regular.

Options concerning which triangulations are output (no influence on exploration):

--cardinality [N]
count/output only triangulations of cardinality N.
--nonregular
count/output only non-regular triangulations.

Options concerning which triangulations are explored:

--regular
consider only regular triangulations.
--noinsertion
never use a point that is unused in the seed triangulation.
--reducepoints
try to remove the number of use points, reported to stderr.
--keepcard
never change the cardinality of triangulations by flipping.

Options concerning symmetries:

--affine
assume that given symmetries are affine.
--nosymmetries
ignore symmetries.

Options for dumping and reading the status of an interrupted computation:

--dump
dump status of previous computation (last completed BFS round) into file.
--dumpfile [FILENAME]
set dump file name to FILENAME (default: "TOPCOM.dump").
--dumpfrequency [N]
dump each Nth completed BFS round (default: 1).
--dumprotations [N]
dump into N rotating files.
--read
read status of previous computation (last completed BFS round) from file.
--readfile [FILENAME]
set dump file name to read to FILENAME (default: "TOPCOM.dump").

Options concerning internal behaviour:

--memopt
try to reduce memory consumption.
--chirocache [N]
set the chirotope cache to N elements.
--localcache [N]
set the cache for local data to N elements.
--soplex
use soplex for regularity checks. Note that soplex is not available from Fedora due to its non-free license.
