Command line arguments
When running your server from the command line, you can take advantage of what is known as command line arguments. This is, basically, sending data to the binary on-the-fly from the interpreter (shell), such as MS-DOS or bash.
Usage: ./soldatserver -d
Starts your server as a Daemon (runs in the background, even when you log off). Linux only.
Usage: ./soldatserver -pid soldatserver.pid
Sets the Process ID file name. Located in the /logs/ folder (soldatserver.pid by default).
Usage: ./soldatserver -m xx.txt
Sets the default mapslist file to xx.txt (mapslist.txt by default).
