# Command Line Interface¶

A Command Line Interface (CLI) is also provided for running long simulations:

## Use¶

It can be used to simulate an existing model and save the resulting images:

./spatial-cli filename [simulator] [simulation_time] [image_interval] [max_cpu_threads]


## Command line parameters¶

• filename
• the SBML file containing the model to be simulated
• simulator
• this can be dune or pixel
• default: dune
• simulation_time
• the total length of the simulation (in model units of time)
• default: 100
• image_interval
• the interval (in model units of time) at which concentration images should be saved
• default: 10
• max_cpu_threads
• the maximum number of cpu threads that should be used
• default: 0 (which means unlimitied / use all available threads)
• note: this parameter only applies to the pixel simulator
