How to pass arguments to tcl script on Hyperworks start

Recommended Posts

I have a tcl script and the tcl is using Hyperworks(Hyperview) library, so I must run it with Hyperview.
I check the help doc and found the following command to load tcl:

<altair_home>/hw/bin/<platform>/hw.exe -clientconfig hwpost.dat -tcl example.tcl

But I cannot pass an argument to the tcl.
For example, I can run this tcl using:

tclsh example.tcl arg1 arg2 ...

The arguments arg1, arg2 will be passed to tcl script, Can I do this using hw.exe -tcl command?

you can do it normally

hw.exe -clientconfig hwpost.dat -tcl example.tcl arg1 arg2


you will scan these args right after "example.tcl", so

set arglist [lrange $args [lsearch -exact $args "example.tcl"] end]

lassign $arglist TclFileName arg1 arg2
