output all parameters in xml

Issue #1258 new
Jian Tao created an issue

I added a commandline options to output all Cactus parameters of all the compiled thorns into an xml string. Since it is basically for machine use only, I didn't consider the format at all.

$cactus_exe -Ox

That is all.

Please find in the attachment a patch for this change.

    We can output this at build time instead of at run time, then this information would be available even earlier. Would this be useful?

    This is in part of a workflow I am working on for software deployment. A built-in functionality like this will be useful for creating a parameter file editor without worrying about storing the information separately.
