Command Line Parameters

Specify a File

When starting QtiPlot from the command prompt, you can supply the name of a project file:

qtiplot file_name.qti

Other file formats are also accepted: .opj, .ogm, .ogw, .ogg for Origin projects, .qti, qti.gz for QtiPlot projects, .xls, .xlsx for Excel workbooks, .ods, .fods for Open Document Format Spreadsheets, .mat for Matlab files, .tdms for LabVIEW TDM Streaming (TDMS) file format, .db, .dbf, .mdb, .accdb for dBase, MySQL, SQLite and Microsoft Access databases and all the image file formats (raster or vectorial) that can be read by QtiPlot.

The name can also refer to an ASCII file:

qtiplot ASCII_file_name

In this latter case, a new "untitled" project will be created, containing a table or matrix with the ASCII data from the file. The file is read and interpreted using the current settings from the Import -> Import ASCII... command dialog.
