-xfollowed by a space and then the path to a conversion list file (e.g., .ixl file) to convert the documents specified in the file. For the format of this file, see .ixl file format
Note that if you also specify
-s to perform a scheduled
conversion then only scheduled entries whose next conversion time are
reached are converted. If you do not specify
then all entries are converted.
-o followed by a space and then the path to a
settings file (e.g., .ixs file) to specify settings
for additional options. For the format of this file, see
.ixs file format
If you do not specify a settings file, then iSiloX uses the
saved system settings.
-a followed by a space and then the path to the
application directory that contains supporting files for iSiloX.
One such supporting file is the html40.css file, which specifies
default HTML style settings. If the application directory is not
specified or if the application directory does not have this file
in its CSS subdirectory, then iSiloX uses default HTML style
On platforms that support automatic queuing of converted documents for HotSync®, the application directory may contain additional files in the Palm subdirectory needed for this functionality.
Under Windows, as long as the iSiloX.exe executable file is
located in the application directory, there is no need to specify
the application path using the
-a option unless you want
to specify a different application directory.
-u to have iSiloX update the conversion status
information for each document in the list. This information
includes the date and time of conversion, the resulting document
size, and whether the conversion was successful or not.
Note that if you specify this option, iSiloX must be able
to write to the conversion list file.
-H alone to hide the conversion progress window
and the conversion result messages.
Note that if you use this option, you will not be able to
cancel the conversion and you will not be able to see the
You can optionally specify additional option letters
to selectively hide only certain windows. For example,
-Hp to only hide the progress dialog
but still display the conversion result messages. If you
just want to see conversion error messages, specify
-Hps so that only the progress and successful
conversion messages are hidden. Note that if you do not
manually dismiss a conversion result message, it automatically
dismisses itself within 30 seconds.
-s to perform a scheduled conversion.
Generally, when you perform a scheduled conversion, you should
also specify the
-u option so that iSiloX can
correctly update the next scheduled conversion times. If you
do not specify the
-u option, scheduled conversions
may not function correctly.
A scheduled conversion only results in the conversion of entries
whose next conversion time has been reached. So if iSiloX is called
to perform a scheduled conversion and no entry has a next conversion
time that is due, then no conversions occur. If, however, there
is at least one entry with a next conversion time that has been
reached or passed, then all such entries are converted. In addition,
in this case, all document entries that have an always
schedule are also converted. All entries then have their
next conversion times updated according to their individual schedules.
iSiloX -x MyDocumentList.ixl
In the above command line,
is assumed to be the file name of a conversion list file
in the current directory. The above command line of course
assumes that iSiloX is located either in the current directory
or the directory in which it is located is one of the directories
in the PATH environment variable.
If you use a scheduler to schedule iSiloX, you may want to have iSiloX update the last conversion status. Under Windows, you might provide to the Windows scheduler a command line similar to the following:
"C:\Program Files\iSilo\iSiloX\iSiloX.exe" -x "C:\My Documents\iSiloWWW.ixl" -uThe double quotes around the path to the executable and the path to the conversion list file are necessary because both paths have spaces.
To simply open a .ixl file within iSiloX, specify the path to the .ixl file as the single command line argument:
"C:\Program Files\iSilo\iSiloX\iSiloX.exe" "d:\ixl\iSiloX Favorites.ixl"
