Should I be using the MOPEX GUI or the command-line version?
Posted by IRSA HelpDesk on 11 March 2013 01:54 PM
The command-line and GUI versions of MOPEX (including APEX) are identical in terms of the results they produce. If you are a new user then we strongly recommend using the GUI, as it is more user-friendly and has enhanced, built-in help pages. If you are running an operating platform other than Solaris 10+, Mac OSX 10.3+ or Linux RedHat then we also recommend using the GUI, as many users have experienced Perl library linking problems while running the command-line version on other platforms. If you are a seasoned MOPEX user, and/or want to run large batch jobs then you may want to consider using the command-line version, as it is marginally faster and can be scripted. Having said that, even experienced users may find the new GUI help pages useful.
