# Run OptiStruct at the Command Line

The tutorial Run OptiStruct from HyperMesh demonstrates how OptiStruct could be launched from within HyperMesh. OptiStruct also can be run at the command line (Unix or MSDOS). This tutorial assumes you already have the running file, plate.fem, in either your Unix or MSDOS directory. This tutorial also assumes you know the location of the solver script.

$HWSDIR/<solver_name> -version ## Execute a Check Run to Validate Input Deck$HWSDIR/<solver_name> plate.fem -check

Information regarding memory requirements is written to the file plate.out.

See Run OptiStruct in the User Guide for more detailed information.
