The Log File
If the log feature is enables any output of genesis to the screen is redirect into a log-file.
The purpose of the log-file is to support background calculation of GENESIS 1.3. Thus
the execution will be terminated if GENESIS 1.3 needs further information (e.g. file names
for additional input files). The log feature is more reasonable for the C++-version
of GENESIS 1.3 because the input file name can by supplied as a command line argument
while starting GENESIS 1.3. The FORTRAN version still needs to request the input file
name thus defying the purpose of a background job. Anyhow to start it as a background
job type the command:
'genesis < geninput > genoutput 2>&1 &'
where geninput is a simple ASCII file containing the file name of the input file. The file
genoutput will catch any output, which cannot be handled by the log file (e.g. error
messages). In the ideal case genoutput contains only the initial text lines for requesting
the input file name.
