Re: [tlaplus] How do I use the command-line tools?


you'll find a description of the command-line tools in the book "Specifying Systems". The TLA Web page also contains a note on the differences of the current versions from what is described in the book. Unfortunately, there is no option to print the full set of available options.

In practice, I recommend making an alias for invoking the command-line tools with default options set at your convenience. For example, I have

alias tlc='java -Xmx512m -cp /usr/local/tla tlc2.TLC -workers 2 -metadir /tmp/TLC'

for invoking the TLC model checker from the command line.
