How do I run Psyclone?

To simply run Psyclone without any modules you need to enter the following command on the command line in the directory

./psyclone[version]ncl

and you will see Psyclone starting up with a default bulit-in psySpec which merely creates two Whiteboards and no modules.

The default port of Psyclone is 10000, which can be changed by either setting the port=12000 command line parameter or by specifying a different port inside the psySpec file, also given as a command line parameter spec=myspec.xml. If port 10000 for some reason is occupied on your computer Psyclone will automatically choose another port and let you know when it starts up.

Normally, one would create a psySpec configuration file to tell Psyclone what to do in terms of which Whiteboards to create, which modules to configure, etc. This is done on the command line with

./psyclone[version]ncl spec=myspec.xml

You can read more about how to create a psySpec in the Psyclone manual.

The full specification of the Psyclone Server command line is

./psyclone[version]ncl [port=[port]] [spec=[spec file]] [html=[html dir]] [verbose=[verbose level]]

where [port] is the Psyclone main TCP/IP port, [spec file] Psyclone XML configuration file, [html dir] the place to find the HTML files for built-in server and [verbose level] how much information to print to the console.
