Command-line options

The full SHASTA command line has the following form:

\mbox{shasta~} [-e~sigma] [-i~fmt] [-n~v] [-q] [-w~name]

where the flags are all optional and have the following meanings:
-e sigma Use ``sigma'' as name for the shift (default is ``E'').
-i fmt Use ``fmt'' for input format (default is ``infix'').
  Currently only ``infix'' and ``lisp'' are supported.
-n var Use ``var'' as name for the independent variable (default is ``n'').
-q Quiet mode, suppress all the informational output (banner, prompts and timings).
-w name Echo ``name'' to the mathematical output stream after executing each command.
