Batch Mode

If FA is started with a single command-line argument, it runs in batch mode. The argument specifies the input and output file names. For instance, if FA is started as

	fa demo
FA looks for an input file named, writes to an output file demo.out or a plot file demo.plot.

If FA is invoked without command-line argument it reads standard input and writes to standard output. With input redirection it will still run in batch mode, as in

	fa < > demo.out
