The Surface Evolver is a program that minimizes the energy of a triangulated surface according to designated energies and constraints. This man page only documents command line options and environment variables. The full package and documentation are available at http://www.susqu.edu/brakke/evolver.

Beware of copious output. -pN Run with N concurrent processes. -q Convert to named quantities at start (equivalent to "convert_to_quantities" runtime command). -Q Suppress echoing of "read" section of datafile, and other files read in. -w Exit immediately after any warning or error message; meant for batch runs. -x Exit immediately after any error message; meant for batch runs. -y Break to user prompt after any warning message.
