A token is any string of non-whitespace surrounded by whitespace. Each time a token begins with a minus sign (-), it is read to determine what follows it. The next token is then read and processed. The program will ignore any token that it doesn't recognize. The tokens that are recognized as commands in a map.inp file are -type, -function, -param, -Units, -chromosomes, -maximum, -end, -named, -start, -stop, -skip, -unskip and -Chromosome.

Note that only the first letter of these tokens is actually necessary (except for -start, -stop and -skip, which require more letters to distinguish between them).

Case is important. -Units is different from -units.
