The 'geotest' program is located in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Centrus\Geolib\32Bit or C:\Program Files\Centrus\Geolib\64Bit (Windows) or <installation root>/samples (UNIX) directory. The 'geotest' source code is located in the C:\Program Files\Centrus\Geolib\Ms_c folder (Windows) or <installation root>/samples (UNIX) directory.

The program can be run without any arguments using the test.ini file or in interactive mode with arguments on the command line.

Configuring 'geotest':

If you do not specify any arguments on the command line when initializing geotest, geotest
initializes using the information in the test.ini file. You need to modify the test.ini file to fit
the configuration of your system. You can find this file in the directory where you installed GeoStan
in Test_fls.

The format of the test.ini file consists of the following lines:

Line 1 Search path for the Centrus® data files.
Line 2 Search path and file name for the ZIP + 4 file (Us.z9).
Line 3 Search path and file name for GeoStan license file (Geostan.lic).
Line 4 Password for your GeoStan license.

Line 10 (Optional) Sets a select number of processing options.
            A – Loads the files for address geocoding.
            Z – Loads the file for centroid geocoding.
            S – Loads spatial query files.
            E – Loads elevation files.
            P – Loads Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) files.
            D - Loads the debug log.
