struct  IMP::AddBoolFlag
struct  IMP::AddFloatFlag
struct  IMP::AddIntFlag
struct  IMP::AddStringFlag


 Base functionality and abstract base classes for representation, scoring and sampling.


bool IMP::get_is_quick_test ()
void IMP::write_help (std::ostream &out=std::cerr)


These methods add support for shared command line flags to IMP. Programs that use this have access to flags declared in modules which allow users to do things like control log level and turn on and off profiling to see what is going on. These functions are Python accessible.

In C++, you can also use the AddFloatFlag, AddStringFlag, AddBoolFlag and AddIntFlag classes to add flags statically.

 Return the name of the current executable. More...
