       nycheck - tool to check syntax of specialized-format patches


       nycheck pam options [ print ] [ .go ]


       nycheck  is  a tool in the Nypatchy suite of programs for working with Patchy Master Files
       (PAM files); see nypatchy(1).  Specifically, it is a syntax checker for these files  which
       is more strict than nypatchy itself.


       The  parameter pam is the name of the PAM file (a default extension of ".car" is assumed),
       print is the output file to write to (the default is  standard  output  if  omitted),  and
       options is a sequence of single-character flags.

       The  command should be ended with ".go" unless one wants to enter the Nypatchy interactive


       Note that options should be  given  as  a  single  string  of  characters  with  no  space
       separation  and  no  use  of  the  - character (except that it can be used in place of the
       options field if no options are desired).  Alphabetic options are not case-sensitive.

       H      Print help information only.

       U      Print a warning if user-defined types occur.

       n      For n a number from 0 to 4 inclusive, assume 58, 62, 74, 84, or 98 lines  per  page
              in  the  output.  (The default is 110 lines per page.)  For n a number greater than
              or equal to 20, use that specific number of lines per page.

       +      Inhibit the initial page-eject.

       Running the command "nycheck help .no" also gives some brief help on usage.
