-caption=window_title
Sets the output window title.
-width=pixels
Sets the width of the window and the images to be calculated.
-height=pixels

-threads=threads
Sets the number of parallel sessions to use for processing of each image.
-sendtimeout=milliseconds

-recvtimeout=milliseconds
Sets the receive timeout.
-interimagetime=seconds
Sets the pause time between two image calculations in seconds.
-imagestorageprefix=file_name_prefix
Sets a file name prefix for saving the calculated images. If set, each successfully calculated image is stored to the given location as PNG file, with a 6-digit file number added.
-colormarks
