qelectrotech - Electric diagrams editor
[--config-dir= DIR] [--lang-dir=DIR]
[--help] [-v|--version] [--license]
QElectroTech is an electric diagrams editor. Diagrams (*.qet) and electric
elements (*.elmt) are stored using the XML format. The elements that can be
used in diagrams may come from the common collection or from the user's custom
collection. Typically, the common collection is readable by all users but it
can't be edited by them. Each user owns its custom collection he can modify as
- Uses DIR as the common collection root directory. Note : this option is
enabled only if the QET_ALLOW_OVERRIDE_CED_OPTION directive has been
specified at compilation time.
- Uses DIR as the current user's configuration directory. This directory
hosts a file named qelectrotech.conf, which contains the application
configuration, and a subdirectory named elements, which contains the
user's elements collection. Note : this option is enabled only if the
QET_ALLOW_OVERRIDE_CD_OPTION directive has been specified at compilation
- Looks for the application translation files in the directory DIR.
- Displays a short description of the available options.
- -v, --version
- Displays the application version (e.g.: 0.1).
- Displays the application license (GNU/GPL).
Note that if one of the three last options is specified in the command line, the
programs stops after having displayed the adequate information. If an instance
of the application launched by the user is still running, this instance will
consider the command line, and notably the files to open. However, options
that redefine directories (common collection, configuration and translation
files) will not be considered. If a filename ends with .elmt, QElectroTech
will try to open it into an element editor. Otherwise, it will consider it as
