Warning, contrary to commands sent by TCP/IP, options and parameters are separated by the "=" sign without any blank space. If the parameter contains spaces it must be enclosed in double quotes "".

On Unix you can send a signal to the running program with the kill command:

Signal Action
1, HUP Reload the default chart and options
15, TERM Gracefully close the program

Automation example using command line

Automation is normally done by sending server commands to the TCP/IP connexion but in some case it may be simpler to use the command line only.

First star the main instance :
# skychart --unique

Then the following command show a chart of Messier 1 without opening a new window:
# skychart --unique --setfov=3 --setproj=EQUAT --search=M1

When finished you can close the main window:
# skychart --unique --quit
