Specify an alternate configuration file to use other than the default, which is ecelerity.conf.

-e *`path`*

Load modules from path rather than the default.


Fetch a new license file from Message Systems if the current one is invalid.

-H *`url`*

Fetch license from an alternative URL. (Use this option instead of the -f option).


Show a help message.

-L *`file`*

Operate on license at an alternate location. (Used only if conffile does not exist).

-p *`proxy`*

HTTP proxy to use.


Show no message if current license is valid. This should be used together with -f
