test1   -host sun2   -loop 4   -time 1.5

where test1 is the name of the executable and host, loop and time are command line options. lr.get_attrib_long assigns the value to a variable, iterations. This variable is incorporated into the script and sets how many loops to perform.

long iterations;
long loop; 
    if (iterations==0){ 
        lr.message("Illegal value");
