2. Invocation

DC may be invoked with the following command-line options:

`-e expr'
`--expression=expr'
Evaluate expr as DC commands.

`-f file'
`--file=file'
Read and evaluate DC commands from file.

`-h'
`--help'
Print a usage message summarizing the command-line options, then exit.

`-V'
`--version'
Print the version information for this program, then exit.

If any command-line parameters remain after processing the options, these parameters are interpreted as additional files whose contents are read and evaluated. A file name of - refers to the standard input stream. If no -e option was specified, and no files were specified, then the standard input will be read for commands to evaluate.
