INTERFACE -- the main commands used to invoke RTcmix

These commands are used to start and run RTcmix from the command-line; i.e. typed into a terminal. CMIX is the default command, it employs the included Minc parsing language to interpret scorefiles. CMIX can also be run interactively with scorefile commands typed directly into a terminal window running the CMIX command, although this requires very careful typing skills.

The PCMIX command is available if RTcmix is configured and compiled with the --with-perl configuration flag (see the installation guide for information about how to do this) -- it uses the Perl language as the scorefile parser.

Similarly, the Python language may be used if the PYCMIX command was created (done with the --with-python configure flag).

All three commands can be run with various options:

   Usage:  CMIX [options] [arguments] < minc_script.sco

   or, to use Perl instead of Minc:
        PCMIX [options] [arguments] <
        PCMIX [options] [arguments]

   or, to use Python:
        PYCMIX [options] [arguments] <

           -i       run in interactive mode
           -n       no init script (interactive mode only)
           -o NUM   socket offset (interactive mode only)
           -c       enable continuous control (rtupdates)
          NOTE: -s, -d, and -e are not yet implemented
           -s NUM   start time (seconds)
           -d NUM   duration (seconds)
           -e NUM   end time (seconds)
           -f NAME  read score from NAME instead of stdin
                      (Minc and Python only)
           --debug  enter parser debugger (Perl only)
           -q       quiet -- suppress print to screen
           -Q       really quiet -- not even clipping or peak stats
           -h       this help blurb
        Other options, and arguments, passed on to parser.
