CIGAL Reference Manual, Chapter 4 (Variables): pflags

Pflags -- Integer variable controlling processor run-time options

usage: pflags = value

PFLAGS, an internally defined integer variable, controls several general aspects of CIGAL's operation. The value of the PFLAGS parameter can be changed at any time and remains set until it is explicitly modified again. The meaning of the different PFLAGS settings is summarized below; adding values combines levels. The default value for all flags is 0.
