|lsp -d wateq4f.dat||as above but appends details including key parameter values (e.g. log_k's)|
|lsp -l wateq4f.dat||as above but appends line numbers and analytical expressions|
|lsp -e -t wateq4f.dat||as above but appends the defining equations and tidies them up|

|lsp -r -s "*.dat" >lsp.out||recursively outputs a list of all species in all *.dat files in the current directory and all sub-directories and sends results to lsp.out|
|lsp -r -p -s -f="U" "*"||recursively finds all U species in all files|

|lsp -d -c new.dat old.dat||compare line-by-line after reducing both files to lsp -d format. Then send the output to 'WinMerge' if found else 'fc' or if set, an explicit -c="<app>"|
|lsp -c="diff" -co="-wB -C 0" -o "new.dat old.dat"||compare new.dat and old.dat in their original formats using the 'diff' program. Ignore white space and blank lines; output no extra context lines|
|lsp -f2 -f="Alkalinity|H|O|E|Na|K|Mg|Ca|Cl|C|S|N" llnl.dat||makes a filtered llnl.dat database file containing just the major element species|
|lsp -f3 -e -t wateq4f.dat||
makes a comma-separated spreadsheet format file with trimmed equations.
The location is:
|lsp -f||help for option f|
|lsp -h | more||full help with paging|
The list species app (lsp) is a small command line program ('app') for analysing PHREEQC-format database files. It helps to count and view the species defined within a file at several levels of detail. It also has a file comparison mode for locating small differences between two database files and the ability to trim existing database files to include just the master species of interest.
Currently the app is only available for x64 Windows. Other operating systems may be supported at a later date.
To install, download and run the Windows installer. An option will be given to download the WinMerge app to provide a visual file viewer for file comparisons (recommended).
After installation it is worth adding the app, lsp.exe, to your path so that it is readily found. The app will be found in the application directory that you chose during installation.
To run, open a command line (console) window and type
where h (for 'help') is an option. This should give a list of all the options and can be viewed here. A list of examples is given in the right panel. Individual help information is available via lsp -<option>.
All output is to the screen. Output to a file can be made using redirection by adding '> <filename>' to the end of the command.
