RaptorXMLXBRL (and RaptorXMLXBRLServer for administration commands) on Windows
raptorxmlxbrl (and raptorxmlxbrlserver for administration commands) on Windows and Unix (Linux, Mac)
* Note that lowercase (raptorxmlxbrl and raptorxmlxbrlserver) works on all platforms (Windows, Linux, and Mac), while upper-lower (RaptorXMLXBRL) works only on Windows and Mac.
* Use forward slashes on Linux and Mac, backslashes on Windows.
On Windows systems: When spaces or special characters occur in strings (for example in file or folder names, or company, person or product names), use quotes: for example, "My File". Note, however, that a backslash followed by a double-quotation mark (for example, "C:\My directory\") might not be read correctly. This is because the backslash character is also used to indicate the start of an escape sequence, and the escape sequence \" stands for the double-quotation mark character. If you want to escape this sequence of characters, use a preceding backslash, like this: \\". To summarize: If you need to write a file path that contains spaces or an end backslash, write it like this: "C:\My Directory\\".
Example of the start command:
Options are listed in short form (if available) and long form. You can use one or two dashes for both short and long forms. An option may or may not take a value. If it takes a value, it is written like this: --option=value. Values can be specified without quotes except in two cases: (i) when the value string contains spaces, or (ii) when explicitly stated in the description of the option that quotes are required. If an option takes a Boolean value and no value is specified, then the option's default value is TRUE. Use the --h, --help option to display information about the command.
--c, --config = File
Specifies the path to a configuration file.
--fork = true|false
Provides the ability to fork when using classic init on Unix servers. The default is false.
