dzedit - the CERN ZEBRA documentation editor
is an interactive interface to the DZDOC (ZEBRA documentation)
system developed at CERN. dzedit
is a wrapper script around dzeX11 that
allows one to set a few environment options. ZEBRA, part of the Packlib
library, permits a developer to create complex data structures in the FORTRAN
77 language; the DZDOC system allows the developer to generate and maintain
documentation of ZEBRA data structures.
- -d driver
- Use the graphics driver driver, i.e., have dzedit
call the program dzedriver. The default is "X11".
You are exceedingly unlikely to want anything other than the default.
- -h host
- Give the host to open the window on. This is the same as
setting the environment variable $DISPLAY to " host:0.0".
You don't need to do so if you are logged on to a remote host through SSH
(if you are using telnet, shame on you!)
- -v version
- Specify the version of CERNLIB to use. This only makes
sense if you have a version of CERNLIB directly from CERN installed. In
this case you should also have set the environment variable $CERN. Then
dzedit will look for the dzeX11 program in the directory
- dzedit tries to read startup commands from this file in the
- dzedit stores the names of the ZEBRA file and documentation
file in this file in the current directory.
- At the end of a session, dzedit outputs this file
containing a transcript of the commands used during the session.
The ZEBRA manual:
(specifically, chapter 16 is about DZDOC).
This man page is essentially useless because the section of the ZEBRA manual
about DZDOC is incomprehensible and there are no tutorials about it. Anyone
who wants to provide a better man page is welcome to do so.
