Command Line Interface

If installed as a command-line executable program (see Installing as an Executable), FOMUS can be invoked from a UNIX shell prompt to process a text file in the format described above in Text File Interface. This is intended for users who don't want to use or learn Lisp and can generate the data some other way.

Example 3.13. FOMUS Usage 12

fomus my_data_file.fms

Type fomus -h to display the command format and list all of the available options. Examples of the file format are given in Text File Interface and Text Input File Examples.
