Command line version does not offer the same error message

Added by Nhu Le over 8 years ago

When I use the GUI and missing a file (in my case the csv file names.csv), it will tell me that file names.csv is missing. However, when I use the command line version, I get:

[nle@fedora17 MC-Projects]$ auto-multiple-choice prepare --mode b --data dhcd dhcd/source.tex
********** Making marks scale...
Output format: dvi

Everything looks to be find, except that there is nothing process (particularly the .xy file is not complete).

Is the command line version designed to used independently with the GUI or is it just a "scriptable" inteface once everything has been setup using the GUI?

I think --data option should point to the data directory (containing SQLite databases): isn't it dhcd/data?
The commands should be usable without the GUI - see Using AMC in command line only.
You can always see what options are used by the GUI when calling AMC commands: switch to debugging mode and look at the log file.

The same command would work as soon as I put names.csv in the project directory. Output:
  • Making marks scale...

Thanks for the trick about using log file for my commands. That saves me from trying to replicate what I have in the GUI.
