FET-CL software is a free software implementation of a heuristic algorithm to automatically schedule the timetable of an educational institution (school, high-school or university). This program runs on command line, without using the X server.

Running simply fet-cl will show usage.

Running fet-cl --inputfile=file=fet [options] will start generation on the desired input file.

Running fet-cl --version [--outputdir=d] will show the program version and will also print this version in the output directory (which is by default the current directory).
