Hi there.

As I understand it, I have two choices to continue to run ASREML from a

One way is to change the .as file from "#CONTINUE" to simply "CONTINUE"

The other way is to include "-c" in the command line.

Is there a difference between these two? If so, when should I use each

Placing '-c' on the command line 'is completely equivalent to have

! is important in recognising the qualifier.

I trust this helps.

Best wishes in the Name of Christ Jesus,
the Saviour of all who believe.
