       tefd - Tool for Data and Event Flow Diagrams


       tefd [options] [document]


       tefd  is  an  X11/Motif based graphical editor for drawing data and control flow diagrams.
       Documents can be loaded from and stored to a file. It can print documents to a  PostScript
       printer or save as PostScript to a file.

       tefd is part of The Toolkit for Conceptual Modeling (TCM).


       You  can  call  tefd  with  a  single  document  name as argument.  If this argument is an
       existing file then tefd tries to load a document from it. If it  does  not  exist,  a  new
       document  is  created  with  the  argument as document name. tefd files should have suffix

       Without a document argument, tefd creates a new empty data and control flow  diagram  with
       the name 'untitled.efd'.

       In  addition  to  the  standard  X11 toolkit options (see X11(7)) tefd accepts the options
       listed below:

       -drawing widthxheight
              Create a drawing area of width pixels wide and height pixels high.

       -help  Write all available options to standard output and quit.

       -maxdrawing widthxheight
              The drawing area can not be larger than width pixels wide and height pixels high.

              Start the editor with a private colormap.

       -projdir directory
              Set the project directory (current working directory) to directory.

       -toEPS [file.eps]
              Generate EPS (to file.eps or stdout when no file name was given) and quit.

       -toFig [file.fig] [-latex]
              Generate Fig format (to file.fig or stdout when no file name was  given  and  quit.
              When  the  -latex  option  is  given,  LaTeX  fonts are generated, otherwise normal
              PostScript fonts are generated.   The  Fig  format  can  be  read  by  xfig(1)  and

       -toPNG file.png
              Generate PNG format to file.png and quit.

       -toPS []
              Generate PostScript (to or stdout when no file name was given) and quit.

              Write the TCM version to standard output and quit.


       The  TCM_HOME  environment  variable  should  be  the  directory  where  the TCM files are

       PATH   Should include $TCM_HOME/bin

              Should include $TCM_HOME/man

              Name of the default printer that is used by tefd.

       LD_LIBRARY_PATH when the distribution contains shared
              object libraries in $TCM_HOME/lib.  Should include $TCM_HOME/lib


       The following relative files are relative to $TCM_HOME.

              the data and control flow diagram editor.

              a program to filter PostScript output.

              PostScript banner page that can be used when the printer does not  print  a  banner

              The help directory contains a collection of text files for the on-line help.

              X  Resources (the same as the ones that are built-in).  You can customize the fonts
              and colors by setting resources in your X defaults database.  Each  string  of  the
              form ``TCM.resource:definition'' sets a resource.

              Pseudo random temporary file, for PostScript output.

              TCM  editor  configuration  file.  This file contains values for some of the editor
              defaults like the page size, the default fonts etc.  This  file  is  read  by  each
              editor upon startup.

              Each  user  of  TCM  can  override  some  of  the  options  of  tcm.conf by its own
              configuration file, installed in $HOME/.tcmrc.
