IntroductionEdit

Celestia can be started either by clicking on its icon or by typing a command into a terminal window. Under Windows, the terminal window is often called a DOS window or CMD window.



A typical command to run Celestia might be

cd Celestia

./Celestia



The command line can optionally include the following qualifiers. These qualifiers are different depending on which command interface Celestia was built for.

Each command qualifier (aka switch) should be prefixed by two hyphens
