     This help message −conf=<file>

     Specify configuration file. Relative paths will be
     prefixed by datadir location. (default: bitcoin.conf)
     −datadir=<dir>

     Specify data directory −getinfo

     Get general information from the remote server. Note
     that unlike server−side RPC calls, the results of
     −getinfo is the result of multiple non−atomic requests.
     Some entries in the result may represent results from
     different states (e.g. wallet balance may be as of a
     different block from the chain state reported) −named

     Pass named instead of positional arguments (default:
     false) −rpcclienttimeout=<n>

     Timeout in seconds during HTTP requests, or 0 for no
     timeout. (default: 900) −rpcconnect=<ip>

     Send commands to node running on <ip> (default:
     127.0.0.1) −rpccookiefile=<loc>

     Location of the auth cookie. Relative paths will be
     prefixed by a net−specific datadir location. (default:
     data dir) −rpcpassword=<pw>

     Password for JSON−RPC connections −rpcport=<port>

     Connect to JSON−RPC on <port> (default: 8332 or
     testnet: 18332) −rpcuser=<user>

     Username for JSON−RPC connections −rpcwait

     Wait for RPC server to start −rpcwallet=<walletname>

     Send RPC for non−default wallet on RPC server (needs to
     exactly match corresponding −wallet option passed to
     bitcoind) −stdin









                             ‐2‐


     Read extra arguments from standard input, one per line
     until EOF/Ctrl−D (recommended for sensitive information
     such as passphrases). When combined with −stdinrpcpass,
     the first line from standard input is used for the RPC
     password.  −stdinrpcpass

     Read RPC password from standard input as a single line.
     When combined with −stdin, the first line from standard
     input is used for the RPC password.  −version

     Print version and exit

     Chain selection options: −testnet

     Use the test chain
