       llines [OPTION]...
       llines [OPTION]...Database


       llines invokes the LifeLines genealogy program.

       For up to date documentation please refer to the Documentation section of this man page.

       LifeLines  is  a  program  to manipulate genealogical information in lineage-linked GEDCOM
       format. It has a curses interface, and a built-in interpreter  for  its  own  genealogical
       report language.


       The following options are some of the options available for llines.

       -C     Specify configuration file location.

       -F     Finnish option (only available if compiled with Finnish flag)

       -I     Specify a user property (e.g. -ILLEDITOR=gvim)

       -a     Log dynamic memory operation (for debugging)

       -c     Supply cache values (eg, -ci400,4000f400,4000 sets direct indi & fam caches to 400,
              and indirect indi & fam caches to 4000)

       -d     Developmental/debug mode (signals are not caught)

       -f     Force open a database (only for use if reader/writer count is wrong)

       -i     Open database with immutable access (no protection against other access -- for  use
              on read-only media)

       -k     Always show key values (normally key is not shown if a REFN is shown)

       -l     Lock  (-ly)  or  unlock  (-ln) a database for use with read only media (access to a
              locked database is treated as immutable)

       -n     Do not use traditional family rules

       -o     Specify program output filename (eg, -o/tmp/mytests)

       -r     Open database with read-only access (protect against other writer access)

              Specify window size (eg, -u120,34 specifies 120 columns by 34 rows)

       -w     Open database with writeable  access  (protecte  against  other  reader  or  writer

       -x     Execute a single lifelines report program directly

       -z     Use  normal  ASCII  characters  for drawing lines in user interface rather than the
              vt100 special characters

       -?     Display options summary, (on UNIX or Linux use the -h option)

       llexec is a version of llines without the user interface for non-interactive processing of
       report programs. (Typically used with the -x option.)

       dbverify  is  a  utility  program  to  verify  Lifelines databases.  For information about
       options, run dbverify with the -h option.


              Possible  locations  for  Lifelines  configuration  file  Lifelines  looks  for   a
              configuration  file for various settings. See section System And User Properties in
              the userguide for details.


       The LifeLines documentation should be installed as part of the installation, and may  also
       be  viewed  at  the project site:  Look for ll-userguide
       and ll-reportmanual (with appropriate extensions for text, html  and  pdf  formats).   The
       normal installation process includes a large number of sample report programs that you can
       customize to suit your needs.  In the directory containing these reports you should find a
       file named index.html which gives a very brief summary of each report.
