These parameters can be set in the sampler's section in the ini parameter file.
If no default is specified then the parameter is required. A listing of "(empty)" means a blank string is the default.

Parameter Type Meaning Default
nsample_dimension integer The number of star points along each dimension of the space
save string If set, a base directory or .tgz name for saving the cosmology output for every point in the star (empty)
nstep int, default=-1 Number of evaluations between saving output, defaults to nsample_dimension
allow_large bool, default=False Allow suspiciously large numbers of evaluations to be done
