Command line options

(OP)
I'm a network systems administrator and have no SQLBase programming skills. I have an application supposedly written with Centura Builder for a SQLBase Server v6.1.02. The application startup file is Exec.exe. It appears the application looks in certain default directories for the databases and the init files. There are 2 init files; SQL.ini and Prog.ini which are normally found in the ProgRun folder. Exec.exe will use the files found in the ProgRun folder on startup. I have a need to use point exec.exe to multipile init files, on the fly, each configured differently. How do I point to different init files? Is there a command line parameter which will allow me to do this? Currently, I run exec.exe out of a batch file which replaces the init files first. This is a bit sloppy and I'd like a more professional approach but don't have contact with experienced programmers of Centura Builder or SQLBase. Any suggestions?

TIA for any information someone might care to offer.

RE: Command line options

From the way you describe it I don't think there is.  It could be done by re-writing the application but if I understand what you are saying this does not sound feasible.

Unfortunately without looking at the application I suspect this is one which can not be answered.  Sorry.

OK, thanks readingcoops. If that's the case, I needed to know that as well. At least I can now stop beating my head against the wall.
