       dzedit - the CERN ZEBRA documentation editor


       dzedit  [ options ]


       dzeX11  is an interactive interface to the DZDOC (ZEBRA documentation) system developed at
       CERN.  dzedit is a wrapper script around dzeX11 that allows one to set a  few  environment
       options.   ZEBRA,  part of the Packlib library, permits a developer to create complex data
       structures in the FORTRAN 77 language; the DZDOC system allows the developer  to  generate
       and maintain documentation of ZEBRA data structures.


       -d driver
              Use  the graphics driver driver, i.e., have dzedit call the program dzedriver.  The
              default is "X11".  You are exceedingly unlikely to want  anything  other  than  the

       -h host
              Give  the  host to open the window on.  This is the same as setting the environment
              variable $DISPLAY to "host:0.0".  You don't need to do so if you are logged on to a
              remote host through SSH (if you are using telnet, shame on you!)

       -v version
              Specify the version of CERNLIB to use.  This only makes sense if you have a version
              of CERNLIB directly from CERN installed.  In this case you should also have set the
              environment  variable  $CERN.   Then dzedit will look for the dzeX11 program in the
              directory $CERN/<version>/bin/.


              dzedit tries to read startup commands from this file in the current directory.

              dzedit stores the names of the ZEBRA file and documentation file in  this  file  in
              the current directory.

              At  the  end  of a session, dzedit outputs this file containing a transcript of the
              commands used during the session.


       The ZEBRA manual:
       (specifically, chapter 16 is about DZDOC).


       This man page is essentially useless because the section of the ZEBRA manual  about  DZDOC
       is  incomprehensible  and  there are no tutorials about it.  Anyone who wants to provide a
       better man page is welcome to do so.


       This manual page was  written  by  Kevin  McCarty  <>  for  the  Debian
       GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
