       nylist - tool to list contents of specialized-format patches


       nylist pam options [ print ] [ .go ]


       nylist  is  a  tool in the Nypatchy suite of programs for working with Patchy Master Files
       (PAM files); see nypatchy(1).  Specifically,  it  can  print  a  listing  (including  line
       numbers) of the contents of these files.


       The  parameter pam is the name of the PAM file (a default extension of ".car" is assumed),
       print is the output file to write to (the default is  standard  output  if  omitted),  and
       options is a sequence of single-character flags.

       The  command should be ended with ".go" unless one wants to enter the Nypatchy interactive


       Note that options should be  given  as  a  single  string  of  characters  with  no  space
       separation  and  no  use  of  the  - character (except that it can be used in place of the
       options field if no options are desired).  Alphabetic options are not case-sensitive.

       E      Page ejects forced in the PAM file with +SEQ,QEJECT are  honored  (only  if  the  S
              option is also given).

       H      Print help information only.

       S      Start each new deck on a new page.

       n      For  n  a number from 0 to 4 inclusive, assume 58, 62, 74, 84, or 98 lines per page
              in the output.  (The default is 110 lines per page.)  For n a number  greater  than
              or equal to 20, use that specific number of lines per page.

       +      Inhibit the initial page-eject.
