Zorro can be started directly with a script from an external program, a shortcut, or a Windows command shell, like this:
"c:\program files\Zorro\Zorro.exe" [options] [scriptname]
If a script name is given, Zorro will open and start it, and exit afterwards. scriptname (without blanks, '/' characters, or extension ".c" or ".x") must be an existing script in the Strategy folder. While the script is running, the COMMAND status flag is set to indicate that it's run from a commandline. Several Zorro functions start other Zorro processes through the command line this way, for instance multicore training, retraining, or retesting.
You can give a command line option either directly in the Windows command prompt, or with the Windows [Run] function, or by editing the properties of a Zorro shortcut. For this, right click the shortcut icon and select Properties (for icons in the Win7 task bar you need to hold the [Shift] key). Under the shortcut tab you'll see the Target field containing the exact location of Zorro.exe within quotation marks. Add -diag after the last quotation mark, and save the modified shortcut with [Apply].
Besides the script name, the following command line options can be given (Zorro S only):
"c:\program files\Zorro\Zorro.exe" -train Z3
Starts a re-training run with the Z3 strategy.
"c:\program files\Zorro\Zorro.exe" -run pricedownload -a USD/CAD
Runs the script pricedownload.c with the selected asset "USD/CAD" in test mode.
"c:\program files\Zorro\Zorro.exe" -diag
Starts Zorro in diagnostics mode. A file diag.txt is generated in the Log folder.
