Running Mason from the Command Line
Supplying the file to be processed
Mason does not provide any prompts. The file to be processed must be given in the command line.
Command line options
Mason can accept the following command line arguments, each followed by a file name:
-c: output the run time information to the following console file
-pf: use the following file to set the paths
(the file simply contains the desired paths, one per line
-v: verbose mode, output useful data
-t: change the XML file used for validation
When using command line arguments (but not when using the pathfile option) remember that if the path contains a space, quotes are needed to encapsulate the path.
-mason –pf paths.txt --c mason.out test.msn
If no argument is provided, Mason runs several validation cases.
To spoof how Mason runs from the TinyCAD, use:
mason -n validation/test.dsn.net -d validation/test.dsn.msn validation/test.dsn.msn.xml
