Command line option -print

Postby cday » Fri Apr 07, 2017 6:18 am

The command line options listed in Info > Command line help... do not include -print ...

Have any other options been added that aren't listed?

Hello,

Well, I have just run the xnview main executable through a hex editor, and I spotted a /print and -print in the same area as the other command-line options.
Never used it myself, and don't know whether it works or not, but there it was

Hello,

Just as a matter of interest, I had another look, and apart from the listed options, I see:
-view
-hidden
-filelist
-print

No idea how they work or what they do, though!

Thanks for your efforts Brian, there seem to be several options that are not currently shown in Info > Command line help...

The command line options simply allow XnView Classic to be launched from the command line to perform one of the supported functions, for example to open specified files:

Code: Select all

xnview file1.jpg file2.jpg file3.jpg

Interestingly, the undocumented -print option doesn't seem to support the -filelist option, as two of us tried all the alternatives we could think of without success earlier in the week, but maximn has posted a request today to add support in this thread.
