NAME

       paw - invoke the "Physics Analysis Workstation" package

SYNOPSIS

       paw [-b macro_name] [-w workstation_type] [-n]

       paw++ [-b macro_name] [-n]

DESCRIPTION

       PAW  is  an  interactive  utility for visualizing experimental data on a computer graphics
       display. It may be run in batch mode if desired for very large  and  time  consuming  data
       analyses;  typically, however, the user will decide on an analysis procedure interactively
       before running a batch job.

       PAW combines a handful of CERN High Energy Physics Library systems that may also  be  used
       individually  in  software  that  processes  and  displays data.  The purpose of PAW is to
       provide many common analysis and display procedures that would be duplicated needlessly by
       individual  programmers,  to  supply a flexible way to invoke these common procedures, and
       yet also to allow user customization where necessary.

       Paw++ is a Motif-based version of PAW.

   OPTIONS
       When paw starts, the macro pawlogon.kumac in the current directory is  executed.  If  this
       macro  doesn't  exist  the  system  tries to execute the macro .pawlogon.kumac in the home
       directory.

       -n      The macro pawlogon is not executed.

       -b macro_name
               The macro specified is executed in batch mode and paw exits when the macro ends.

       -w workstation_type
               PAW  starts  immediately  without  prompting  for  the   workstation   type.    If
               workstation_type = 0, paw starts without graphics.

               When  the  X11  version  of  paw  is used, a list of 10 valid workstation types is
               provided in the file higz_windows.dat.  By default this file  is  in  the  current
               directory.  If  it  is not, the one in the home directory is used. If it is not in
               the home directory, one is automatically created in the current  directory.   Each
               line in this file describes the position and the size of the window. To access one
               of the described windows it is enough to give the line  number  in  reply  to  the
               prompt "Workstation type"

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       HIGZPRINTER         Specifies  the command line executed when the command PICTURE/PRINT is
                           invoked.

       KUIPPAGER, PAGER    Checked in this order to determine what  pager  program  to  use.   If
                           neither are set, 'sensible-pager' is used in Debian.

       KUIPEDITOR, EDITOR  Checked in this order to determine what editor to use.  If neither are
                           set, 'sensible-editor' is used in Debian.

       KUIPPSVIEWER, PSVIEWER
                           Checked in this order to determine the  program  to  use  for  viewing
                           PostScript.  If neither are set, 'gv' is used.

       $ENV()              Any  environment  variable  can  be  accessed in paw with the function
                           $ENV().
