Introduction

Welcome to the user manual of CLC Server Command Line Tools 6.0.3. This user manual can also be found in pdf format: User_Manual.pdf

The CLC Server Command Line Tools provide a command line client for CLC Server solutions1.1. Using this client, tasks can be started on CLC Servers, including bioinformatics analyses, data import and export, and utility data operations such as moving, renaming, and deleting data on the server.

The CLC Server Command Line Tools is particularly well suited for work on production environments. Automation and consistency are well supported through inclusion of CLC Server Command Line Tools commands in scripts and the use of standard system tools for scheduling tasks.

CLC Server Command Line Tools commands are non-interactive: all data and parameter settings required are specified up front in the command, making it very quick to launch complex jobs once the desired settings have been determined.

Choosing a CLC Server client

We provide two types of clients for the CLC Server, the CLC Server Command Line Tools and the graphical CLC Workbenches. Here we outline some considerations that may be useful when considering which client type to use for your work.
