See QTLcart(1) for more information on the global options
-h for help, -A for automatic, -V for non-Verbose
-W path for a working directory, -R file to specify a resource
file, -e to specify the log file, -s to specify a seed for the
random number generator and -X stem to specify a filename stem.
The options below are specific to this program.
If you use this program without specifying any options, then you will
get into a menu that allows you to set them interactively.
This requires a filename stem for output. Preplot will overwrite the file if
it exists, and create a new file if it does not. If not used, then Preplot will use
qtlcart. The GNUPLOT file will be qtlcart.plt in that case.
Preplot will search for the ouput files from Rqtl, Eqtl and MImapqtl and try to
process them. If you don't want them processed, rename or move the files. Note that
Preplot only searches for files with names stem.eqt, stem.qtl and stem.mqt, where
stem is the filename stem.
