Command-Line Options -Input -input input_file The -input option reads a file in the format produced by the -Input option. It is recommended that input files be created with -Input and then modified, as the treatment of keywords in the file is rather stringent. Blank lines, and lines beginning with '#' are ignored. The --event_pairs keyword must be the last such in the file, followed by the event table. The --event_pairs keyword cancels the effect of a previous -group keyword or -group option. Other keywords and options may replace or mask values given in the event table; this is explained in the file produced by -Input.
Examples rabbit -g 0 -I > z # build an input file, with --c 0 more z # read the file rabbit -I -i z # read and echo the file rabbit -I --c 1 -i z # substitute a value, the file overrides rabbit -I -i z --c 1 # substitute a value, the command overrides rabbit -I --c 1 -i z --c 2 # substitute a value, the last applies
Example - Pentium Pro/II/III performance characterization Two input files for an exhaustive study of the Pentium Pro/II/III. rabbit -i in.sample foo rabbit -i in.sweep foo
