       saga_cmd	--create-config[=file]
	  Create a default configuration file. If no file name is specified

       SAGA GIS	(System	for Automated Geoscientific Analysis) is a free	and
       open source geographic information system used for editing and
       analysing spatial data. It includes a large number of tools for the
       analysis	of vector, table, grid and image data.

       The SAGA	command	line interpreter is particularly useful	for the
       processing of complex work flows	by defining a series of	subsequent
       tool calls in a script file. Calling saga_cmd with the option
       '--create-batch'	will create an example of a DOS	batch script file,
       which might be a	good starting point for	the implementation of your own
       specific	work flows.

       When run	without	arguments, the tool libraries found in the SAGA
       installation directory (e.g. /usr/lib/saga) will	be loaded
       automatically. Additional directories can be specified by adding	the
       environment variable 'SAGA_TLB' and let it point	to one or more
       directories, just the way it is done with the DOS 'PATH'	variable.

	       Specify the library (e.g. ta_morphometry) and the tool (number
	       or name). If no tool is specified the different tools of	a
	       library are listed.
