Command Line Options -- Summary List

Quick reference list

A broad range of fScan processing features are controlled by “command-line option” operators. Command-line options can be specified on the fScan command line, as batched commands via Options command files, or interactively via the Go command, Menus, or Taskbars.

For a general description of fScan command-line options and how they compare to interactive key commands see fScan Commands.
See the fScan Programming page for a discussion of how to combine commands to perform more complex functions.

Summary list of command line options (Select individual command names for more information on that option):
