Positional parameters

When specifying new value for a parameter on the command line, the simplest method is to type its value only :

      exename par1value par2value par2value [ ... ]

More specifically, PIL treats n-th command line argument as new value for n-th parameter in the parameter file (hence the name *positional*). That is, assuming there are no empty/comment lines, the parameter in the n-th line in the parameter file.
