Using The Command Line Application

Helix DNA Producer command line application is distributed as a compressed archive. There is no installer to run and all the files it needs are self-contained in one directory. To unpackage and run the command line application:

  2. Open a command prompt
  3. Change directory into the application directory
  4. Type 'producer' to see a listing of help on the screen. Type 'producer -m' to see a complete help file in HTML format.
