mcx — perform various computations on graphs and matrices
mcx implements a variety of computations on graphs and matrices. The first argument to mcx should be a mode, which is a string establishing the type of computation to invoke. Each mode mode is described in the mcxmode manual page. The currently available modes are convert, diameter, clcf, q and ctty. The convert mode is thus described in the mcxconvert manual page.
Invoking mcx without arguments causes it to print out a list of available modes with a short description of the type of command line expected by that mode.
Invoking mcx with just a mode will print out a longer listing of options available for that particular mode. Modes that are able to function normally without arguments can be invoked by adding the --nop argument.
Several options are shared between all mcx modes. Note that these options are specified after the mode. See OPTIONS.
The --version causes mcx to print out version and license information.
Issuing mcx help mode will cause mcx to look for a manual page describing mode and display it if found. This requires that the MANPATH environment variable contains the directory in which the MCL-edge manual pages were installed. This will usually be PREFIX/share, where PREFIX is the path with which the software was configured.
These are options that pertain to all modes. They should be specified after the mode argument.
List available options.
Not an option. This option has no effect then to increment the argument count. This can be useful for mcx modes which are able to function without any options. Such a mode typically reads from STDIN, writes to STDOUT, and uses default settings. However, simply specifying a mode without options leads mcx to output a list of available options for that mode. This can be prevented by using the --nop option.
Sets the key key to value val in the environment. Some modes allow adjustment of settings in this manner.
Defines the interval that defines the progress frequency.
Turn debugging on.
