       SAGA GIS (System for Automated Geoscientific Analysis) is a free and open source
       geographic information system used for editing and analysing spatial data. It includes a
       large number of modules for the analysis of vector, table, grid and image data.

       The SAGA command line interpreter is particularly useful for the processing of complex
       work flows by defining a series of subsequent tool calls in a script file. Calling
       saga_cmd with the option '-b' or '--batch' will create an example of a DOS batch script
       file, which might be a good starting point for the implementation of your own specific
       work flows.

       When run without arguments, the module libraries in the current module library are listed.
       By default this is the directory which was set at installtion (/usr/lib/saga). This can be
       overwritten by setting the environment variable SAGA_MLB.


               Module libraries are expected to be located in the directory that is specified by
               the environment variable 'SAGA_MLB'. If this is not found the module installation
               directory (/usr/lib/saga) will be searched for instead.

               Specify the library (ie ta_morphometry) and the module (number or name). If no
               module is specified the different modules of a library are listed.

       -h, --help
               Display help and exit

       -d, --docs
               Create tool documentation in the current working directory

       -b, --batch
               Create batch file examples in the current working directory

       -c, --cores
               Number of physical processors to use for computation

       -f, --flags
               Various flags for general usage [qrsilpxo]

               q No progress report
               r No messages report
               s Silent mode (no progress and no messages report)
               i Allow user interaction
               l Load translation dictionary
               p Load projections dictionary
               x Use XML markups for synopses and messages
               o Load old style naming
