prefix is specified, that application is loaded and the script file is looked
up in its script directory.
.TP
\fB\-\-script\fP [\fIapplication\fP::]\fIscript_file\fP \fIarguments\fP ...
Execute the script, passing the arguments in @ARGV.
.TP
\fB\-\-iscript\fP [\fIapplication\fP::]\fIscript_file\fP \fIarguments\fP ...

print the properties, or run the user methods.
.TP
\fB\-\-touch\fP \fIfile\fP [ \fIfile\fP ... ]
Read the files and write them out; useful for converting from older polymake
versions.

control.
.TP
\fB\-\-reconfigure\fP
Rerun the autoconfiguration sections in all rule files.
.TP
\fB\-\-config\-path\fP "DIR;..."
Import settings from global configuration files in the given directories.  If
the last DIR in the list starts with ~/, use it instead of ~/.polymake to keep
the private settings.  The default is "user", using only the private
configuration located at $POLYMAKE_USER_DIR or ~/.polymake.
.TP
\fB\-\-no\-config\fP
Equivalent to \-\-config\-path=none.  Don't read any configuration files.
Don't try to configure rules automatically.  Don't load rule files requiring
auto-configuration.

Equivalent to \-\-config\-path=ignore.  Don't read any configuration files.
Skip auto-configuration routines in the rule files.
.TP
\fB\-n\fP
Dry run mode: show the production rules that would be applied to the object,
but don't actually run any.  This is only applicable in compatibility mode.
.TP
\fB\-T\fP \fIsec\fP
Set a time limit for the execution of production rules.  This option currently
has no effect.
