Interactive Mode

The default behavior for the QTL Cartographer programs is to present the user with a menu of numbered options. This menu is in a loop, so the user can pick options and change them, one at a time. when satisfied that the proper options have been set, selecting ``0'' will tell the program to continue. There will always be an option to quit without doing anything. This will be the last numbered option.

When ``0'' is chosen, the programs will present a summary of the options and continue. At termination, the options will be written to the resource file so that the options and parameter values are remembered.
