       gnumeric - a GNOME spreadsheet application.


       gnumeric [OPTIONS] [files ... ]


       Gnumeric  is a powerful spreadsheet program created by the GNOME project. Gnumeric intends
       to compete with commercial  spreadsheets  by  becoming  fully  compatible  with  Microsoft
       Excel(TM)  and  through  the  support  of  most  popular  spreadsheet file formats such as
       Excel(TM), Lotus 1-2-3(TM), Applix(TM), Sylk(TM), XBase(TM), Oleo(TM)  and

       Gnumeric  supports  advanced calculations using statistical, financial and database access
       functions. Plotting data is supported through an incomplete but powerful plotting  system.
       A  plugin  system extends gnumeric , for instance enabling the export of data to the LaTeX
       \longtable format. Plugins can be used  to  define  custom  functionality.  A  rudimentary
       scripting  API  for  the  Python  language exists and will be extended in the near future.
       Since gnumeric is free software, gnumeric can also be extended directly at the source code
       level by any competent programmer.

       The  program  can  be  started  from the command line as gnumeric or from one of the menus
       provided by the underlying platform. When started on the command  line,  gnumeric  may  be
       followed  by  the  options  listed  below  and  possibly  the  names  of  files in various
       spreadsheet formats which will then be opened immediately. For instance, the command:

           gnumeric myfile.gnumeric

       will launch gnumeric and open the file called "myfile.gnumeric". The default gnumeric file
       format  is in extensible markup language (XML) which subsequently has been compressed with


       This program follows the usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  single  letter  options
       starting with a single dash (`-') and longer options starting with two dashes (`--').

   Help options
       -?, --help Show help message.

              Displays a brief usage message.

   Gnumeric options
       -v, --version
              Displays the version number of the installed instance of gnumeric.

              Start  gnumeric  without  showing the splash screen.  The splash screen is normally
              shown if loading files takes too long.

   Options for window placement
       -g, --geometry=WIDTHxHEIGHT+XOFF+YOFF
              Set the size and position of the first window. All  units  are  in  pixels.  The  X
              offset  is  from  the left hand side of the screen, the Y offset is from the top of
              the screen. For example, -g=800x600+20+30 will open a gnumeric  window  800  pixels
              wide  by 600 pixels high, with the left edge of gnumeric 20 pixels from the left of
              the screen and the top edge of gnumeric 30 pixels from the top of the screen.

              X display to use, where DISPLAY has the form machinename:Xdisplay.Screen. Note that
              the  machine displaying gnumeric must have granted the machine running gnumeric the
              right to display (see xhost).

              X screen to use, a more compact form of the functionality described above.


   GNOME options
              Disable sound server usage.

              Enable sound server usage.

              Host:port on which the sound server to use is running.

              Disable the bug submission dialog which appears if Gnumeric crashes.

   GTK options
              Gdk debugging flags to set.

              Gdk debugging flags to unset.

       --sync Make X calls synchronous.

              Program class as used by the window manager.

              The host on which  to  contact  the  gxid  daemon.  This  overrides  the  GXID_HOST
              environment  variable.  This  option  is only available if GTK+ has been configured
              with --gdk-target=x11.

              The port for the connection to  gxid.  This  overrides  the  GXID_PORT  environment
              variable.  This  option  is  only available if GTK+ has been configured with --gdk-
