|AHELP for CIAO 4.5 ChIPS v1||
Automatically loads the chips.rc file into preferences when the ChIPS server starts up.
set_preference_autoload( toggle )
- toggle - a boolean flag to indicate whether the preferences should be loaded when the server starts up; see the Booleans section of "ahelp chipsopt"
The set_preference_autoload command tell ChIPS that when the server is started it should load the user's default preferences.
This is similar to calling load_preferences without any arguments. The difference is that load_preferences will start a chips server (if necessary) and load the preferences, while set_preference_autoload does not cause a server to be created. If a server already exists, this command does nothing.
chips> set_preference_autoload(True) chips> connect()
Preferences will be loaded after the connection to the server is established.
