Due to the large number of parameters used in any Hardklör analysis, all parameters are set in a configuration file rather than typed out on the command line. A sample configuration file is provided with Hardklör, and can also be copied from this example.
Changing parameters should be done from any ASCII text editor, such as
vim in Linux, or
notepad in Windows.
For ease of reading, parameter names use english words instead of single letters. Notes are defined as any
text that appears after the
# symbol on each line. Notes are not processed as parameters and are there to
provide helpful information to users. Feel free to add additional notes as needed for your analysis.
Make a different configuration file for each analysis you wish to perform. Simply copy an existing configuration file, then give it a unique name and adjust the parameters. Thus, you preserve the unique parameter settings for each of your analyses.
For clarity, the parameters have been divided into five groups by similarity. This page will describe the most important parameters within those groups. A complete list of all parameters and their descriptions can be found on the Parameters page.
