|--colors||[=modus]||Define the modus for colored text output. Allowed keywords are:
If a command is prefixed by
|--no-colors||Deactive colorized text. This is the default, if an output file is not a terminal.|
|-B||--brief||Print only warnings and suppress hints.|
|-l||--long||Be verbose and print more statistics.|
|-q||--quiet||Be quiet until the first warning or hint is found.|
|--no-echo||Suppress output of @ECHO commands while scanning text files.|
|-N||--no-check||Do not make plausibility checks for KCL files.|
|-i||--ignore||Ignore non existing source files without warning.|
If opening a file, the data comes first into the mouth.
The mouth will convert the incoming data to an internal dynamic data structure.
First, the file type is analyzed.
If it is a KCL text file, a parser environment is setup and the file is scanned.
Binary KCL file are scanned directly with some validity checks.
Errors in the mouth phase are always printed as warnings with a leading
After reading, the data comes into the stomach and is ready for checking, transforming and output, whatever the user want. And this means, that the KCL plausibility check sees only the fixed data and can only do some semantic checks.
|List of tests|
|INFO||The SZS Tools will write a signature if creating a new KCL. If this signature is found, it is printed.|
|HINT||The number of face down triangles is printed. These are all triangels with a negative normal.|
|HINT||The number of face down triangles with an angle >30° is printed. The number here is included in hint above.|
|HINT||The number of obsolete triangles is printed. Obsolete triangels are not referenced by the octree and not seen by the game.|
|HINT||The number of triangles with extreme values is printed. Extreme means, that the triangels are very very huge or very very thin.|
|WARN||The number of triangles with invalid values is printed. This happens, if a vertex or normal in not a valid number, or if the length of a triangle is zero.|
|WARN||The number of invalid triangle references is printed. This happens, if a the octree section links to a non existing triangle.|
