Colour Palette Editor is quite flexible in how command line arguments can be specified.

Argument Names

The Colour Palette Editor client supports two different prefixes for denoting a command line argument - a forward slash (/) or a hyphen (-).

For example, both of these arguments mean the same thing:


Argument Values

Many of Colour Palette Editor 's command line arguments require a value following the argument name. Values can be prefixed with either a space (), an equals sign (=) or a colon (:)

As with the above example, the following three items are seen as the same by Colour Palette Editor:

/format png  

If an argument value contains a space, then the entire value must be surrounded with either single or double quotes. For example:

/ac "Created with Cyotek Colour Palette Editor"
