tstd - Tool for State Transition Diagrams
tstd [options] [diagram]
tstd is an X11/Motif based graphical editor for drawing state transi‐
tion diagrams. Diagrams can be loaded from and stored to a file. It
can print diagrams to a PostScript printer or save as PostScript to a
tstd is part of The Toolkit for Conceptual Modeling (TCM).
You can call tstd with a single diagram name as argument. If this
argument is an existing file then tstd tries to load a diagram from it.
If it does not exist, a new diagram is created with the argument as
diagram name. tstd files should have suffix ’*.std’.
Without a diagram argument, tstd creates a new empty state transition
diagram with the name ’untitled.std’.
In addition to the standard X11 toolkit options (see X11(7)) tstd
accepts the options listed below:
Create a drawing area of width pixels wide and height pixels
-help Write all available options to standard output and quit.
The drawing area can not be larger than width pixels wide and
height pixels high.
Start the editor with a private colormap.
Set the project directory (current working directory) to direc‐
Generate EPS (to file.eps or stdout when no file name was given)
-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 fig2dev(1).
Generate PNG format to file.png and quit.
Generate PostScript (to file.ps 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 installed.
PATH Should include $TCM_HOME/bin
Should include $TCM_HOME/man
Name of the default printer that is used by tstd.
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 state transition diagram editor.
a program to filter PostScript output.
PostScript banner page that can be used when the printer does
not print a banner page.
The help directory contains a collection of text files for the
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:defi‐
nition’’ 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.
