# cli¶

A python command line interpreter which has all the Gaffer modules available to it.

Caution

This application is deprecated. Use gaffer env python instead.

## -help¶

Prints names and descriptions of each parameter rather than running the application.

## -threads¶

The maximum number of threads used for computation. The default value of zero causes the number of threads to be chosen automatically based on the available hardware.

## -profileFileName¶

If this is specified, then the application is run using the cProfile profiling module, and the results saved to the file for later examination.
