  • Run cpptestcliwith the -config switch and specify a built-in, user-defined or  DTP-hosted  test configuration:

    Code Block
    -config "builtin://Recommended Rules"
    -config "user://Foo Configuration"
    -config "dtp://Foo Team Configuration" 
    -config "dtp://"

    You can also provide a path or URL to the test configuration .properties file:

    Code Block
    -config "C:\Devel\Configs\"
    -config ""

    For example, your command line may resemble the following:

    Code Block
    cpptestcli -config "builtin://Recommended Rules" -compiler gcc_3_4 -input cpptest.bdf
  • In the .properties file, specify the default configuration that will be run when the -config option is not used:

    Code Block
    cpptest.configuration=user://Configuration Name
