# Command-line reference

The command-line commands are listed alphabetically here.

Refer to Configuration and administration commands by function for an easily reviewed functional command grouping, and Configuration using the command line for information on using the Spotfire command line.

In this reference we use the following symbols:
• Angle brackets (< >) indicate mandatory arguments.
• Square brackets ([ ]) indicate optional arguments.
• Curly brackets ({ }) indicate flags that can be specified multiple times.
Arguments can normally be specified in two different formats. For example, the `max cache size` argument may be entered as `--max-cache-size=<value>` or `-m <value>`.

A negative value must be preceded by a backslash in the second argument format, for example `-m \-7`.
