3. Command Line Tools

The Belle2 Software provides a number of command line tools for general use, including tools to work with files, to help with debugging/testing or for validation purposes. The general rule is that all tools which are intended to be useful for most users should start with the name b2 followed by a usage category, for example b2file for all tools for file handling. Sub categories should be added using - signs, for example b2file-metadata-show is a tool intended to show the metadata embedded into files created by the Belle2 Software.
