Startup Command and Parameter Reference
Introduction : Using parameter files : Calling parameter files : Calling a parameter file in a startup command
 
Calling a parameter file in a startup command
From the startup command line, use the Parameter File (-pf) startup parameter to call the parameter file, as shown in the following table:
Operating system
Syntax
UNIX
pro sports -pf filename.pf
Windows
prowin32 -1 sports -pf filename.pf
(Specify in the Command Line field of a Shortcut Properties dialog box.)
The filename can be any valid filename. OpenEdge combines all parameters on a command line with those in the parameter file. If the same parameter is mentioned more than once, the last occurrence takes precedence. For more information on startup parameters, see Startup Parameter Descriptions.
