I'm having a hard time seeing the difference between loading a file as simple argument to the swipl command or using -s.  I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 and swipl 18.1.0. 

The docs have this as a startup command. 

swipl [option ...] prolog-file ... [[--] arg ...]

If I have a -s option and a "prolog-file" does that mean both will be loaded?  Which will be loaded first?  Are the two interchangeable?

Thanks,
John

No, I'm not seeing a difference either.  Using "swipl -s file.pl" simply starts swipl, compiles the file, and gives you a command prompt to start writing queries.  Skipping -s does the same.

It doesn't seem 'script file' is really defined anywhere, so I'm not clear what the intention is with this.
