       ttdt - Tool for Transaction Decomposition Tables


       ttdt [options] [document]


       ttdt  is an X11/Motif based graphical editor for drawing transaction decomposition tables.
       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.

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


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

       Without a document name as argument, ttdt creates a new  transaction  decomposition  table
       with the name 'untitled.tdt'.

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

       -cell widthxheight
              Sets the minimal cell size of the editor to width pixels  wide  and  height  pixels
              high. The cells in the initial table have the minimal size.

       -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.

       -table rowsxcolumns
              The  table  editor  will  be  initialized with a table having rows rows and columns
              columns. By default the initial table has 7 rows and 7 columns.

       -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 ttdt.

              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.

              the transaction decomposition table 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.
