tgd - Tool for Generic Diagrams
tgd [options] [diagram]
tgd is an X11/Motif based graphical editor for drawing generic diagrams. Diagrams can be loaded from and stored to a file. It can print diagrams to a PostScript printer or save as PostScript to a file. tgd is part of The Toolkit for Conceptual Modeling (TCM).
You can call tgd with a single diagram name as argument. If this argument is an existing file then tgd tries to load a diagram from it. If it does not exist, a new diagram is created with the argument as diagram name. tgd files should have suffix '*.gd'. Without a diagram argument, tgd creates a new empty generic diagram with the name 'untitled.gd'. In addition to the standard X11 toolkit options (see X11(7)) tgd 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. -priv_cmap 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 fig2dev(1). -toPNG file.png Generate PNG format to file.png and quit. -toPS [file.ps] Generate PostScript (to file.ps or stdout when no file name was given) and quit. -version Write the TCM version to standard output and quit.
The TCM_HOME environment variable should be the directory where the TCM files are installed. PATH Should include $TCM_HOME/bin MANPATH Should include $TCM_HOME/man PRINTER Name of the default printer that is used by tgd. LD_LIBRARY_PATH Should include $TCM_HOME/lib when the distribution contains shared object libraries in $TCM_HOME/lib.
The following relative files are relative to $TCM_HOME. bin/tgd the generic diagram editor. bin/psf a program to filter PostScript output. lib/banner.ps PostScript banner page that can be used when the printer does not print a banner page. lib/help/* The help directory contains a collection of text files for the on-line help. lib/TCM 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. /tmp/tcmXXXXXX Pseudo random temporary file, for PostScript output. lib/tcm.conf 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. $HOME/.tcmrc Each user of TCM can override some of the options of tcm.conf by its own configuration file, installed in $HOME/.tcmrc.
