Arguments

x

a character string holding an option name.

Details

Invoking distrEllipseoptions() with no arguments returns a list with the current values of the options. To access the value of a single option, one should use getdistrEllipseOption("WarningSim"), e.g., rather than distrEllipseoptions("WarningSim") which is a list of length one.

Value

distrEllipseoptions() returns a list of the global options of distrEllipse.
distrEllipseoptions("Nsim") returns the global option Nsim as a list of length 1.
distrEllipseoptions("Nsim" = 3000) sets the value of the global option Nsim to 3000. getdistrEllipseOption("Nsim") the current value set for option Nsim.

Currently available options

Nsim
