Add a GMX_NO_CREDITS variable to not show credits on every run
It's pretty annoying to get output loaded of messages like the following, especially when running scripts. Would be nice to have a GMX_NO_CREDITS variable to be able to disable this showing. I am referring to:

The change should probably be done at src/gmxlib/copyrite.c... but since I don't know C, I don't know how to patch it myself :(
Thanks a lot
Add a GMX_NO_CREDITS variable to not show credits
It's annoying to get output loaded of credits messages, especially when
running scripts. This commit add GMX_NO_CREDITS environment variable,
when set no copyright is shown.
Related to #1267.
#1 Updated by Mark Abraham almost 5 years ago
- Category set to analysis tools
- Status changed from New to Accepted
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
- Target version set to 4.6.x
There are certainly people who agree with you - see #1209. The suggestion of introducing an environment variable in the 4.6 branch to hack things to be quiet seems reasonable to me. We will keep the default behaviour the same, because some people will have scripts that depend on this behaviour.
