The Slicer3 launcher has been ported to Qt in Slicer4.

Usage
  Slicer [options]

  --launcher-help                              Display help
  --launcher-version                           Show launcher version information
  --launcher-verbose                           Verbose mode
  --launch                                     Specify the application to launch
  --launcher-detach                            Launcher will NOT wait for the application to finish
  --launcher-no-splash                         Hide launcher splash
  --launcher-timeout                           Specify the time in second before the launcher kills the application. -1 means no timeout (default: -1)
  --launcher-load-environment                  Specify the saved environment to load.
  --launcher-dump-environment                  Launcher will print environment variables to be set, then exit
  --launcher-show-set-environment-commands     Launcher will print commands suitable for setting the parent environment (i.e. using 'eval' in a POSIX shell), then exit
  --launcher-additional-settings               Additional settings file to consider
  --launcher-ignore-user-additional-settings   Ignore additional user settings
  --launcher-generate-exec-wrapper-script      Generate executable wrapper script allowing to set the environment
  --launcher-generate-template                 Generate an example of setting file
  --cmd                                        Start cmd

  --, --ignore-rest                             Ignores the rest of the labeled arguments following this flag. (default: false)
  -h, --help                                    Display available command line arguments.
  --testing                                     Activate testing mode. It implies --disable-settings and --ignore-slicerrc. (default: false)
  --disable-python                              Disable python support. This is equivalent to build the application with Slicer_USE_PYTHONQT=OFF.
  --python-script                               Python script to execute after slicer loads.
  --python-code                                 Python code to execute after slicer loads.
  -c                                            Python code to execute after slicer loads. By default, no modules are loaded and Slicer exits afterward.
  --ignore-slicerrc                             Do not load the Slicer resource file (~/.slicerrc.py).
  --additional-module-path                      Additional module path to consider when searching for modules to load.
  --additional-module-paths                     List of additional module path to consider when searching for modules to load.
  --modules-to-ignore                           Comma separated list of modules that should *NOT* be loaded.
  --disable-modules                             Disable the loading of any Modules.
  --disable-builtin-modules                     Disable the loading of builtin Modules.
  --disable-cli-modules                         Disable the loading of any Command Line Modules.
  --disable-builtin-cli-modules                 Disable the loading of builtin Command Line Modules.
  --disable-loadable-modules                    Disable the loading of any Loadable Modules.
  --disable-builtin-loadable-modules            Disable the loading of builtin Loadable Modules.

Notes

--launch <executable> [parameters]
specify the full path of the executable. Use which executable or locate executable to find the full path of an executable.
parameters is passed to the executable

Examples

.\Slicer.exe --launch "C:\Program Files (x86)\depends22_x86\depends.exe" bin\Debug\MRMLCore.dll

Starts the dependency walker with the MRMLCore.dll library.

Developers

The executable Slicer application is: Slicer-Superbuild/Slicer-build/Slicer (or Slicer.exe)

Slicer is actually a wrapper created using the CTK AppLauncher. The wrapper exists to set library and environment paths before launching the real application binary in Slicer-Superbuild/Slicer-build/bin/SlicerQT-real (or SlicerQT-real.exe)

The launcher is part of the CTK effort.
