Process Nicknames: nickname

The nickname command associates nicknames to running instances of OOMMF applications. These names are used by the MIF 2.x Destination command.

The nickname command line is:

tclsh oommf.tcl nickname [standard options] [-account name] \
   [-hostport port] [-pid] [-timeout secs] oid nickname [nickname2 ...]
-account name
Specify the account name. The default is the same used by mmLaunch: the current user login name, except on Windows 9X, where the dummy account ID ``oommf'' may be used instead.
-hostport port
Use the host server listening on port. Default is set by the Net_Host port setting in oommf/config/options.tcl, or by the environment variable OOMMF_HOSTPORT (which, if set, overrides the former). The standard setting is 15136.
Specify application instance to nickname by system PID (process identifier) rather than OID (OOMMF identifier).
-timeout secs
Maximum time to wait for response from servers, in seconds. Default is five seconds.
The OOMMF ID of the running application instance to nickname, unless the -pid option is specified, in which case the system PID is specified instead.
One or more nicknames to associate with the specified application instance. Each nickname must include at least one non-numeric character.
This command is used to associate nicknames with running instances of OOMMF applications. The MIF 2 Destination command can then use the nickname to link Oxs output to a given OOMMF application instance at problem load time. Nicknames for GUI applications can be viewed in the application About dialog box, or can be seen for any application via the -names option to the command line application pidinfo.

Note that nicknames can also be associated with OOMMF applications when they are started via the standard -nickname command line option, or by using the application:nickname syntax for applications launched by the MIF Destination command.
