Section8.1Running mbx

mbx is a Python script, so you will need to have the Python interpreter on your system. At a command-line (in a terminal or console), you can run

mbx -h

to get a summary of the commands. Some of the processing may take a long time, or you may experience trouble. There are two switches to enable more verbose output in your terminal or console.

mbx -v

will provide progress indicators, while

mbx -vv

will provide progress indicators along with additional information that will help you or a fellow author to discern where a problem lies. Please include all of this output if you are asking for help, and do not assume you know exactly which part is relevant.
