        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:
        -drawing widthxheight
               Create  a  drawing  area  of width pixels wide and height pixels
        -help  Write all available options to standard output and quit.
        -maxdrawing widthxheight
               The drawing area can not be larger than width  pixels  wide  and
               height pixels high.
               Start the editor with a private colormap.
        -projdir directory
               Set  the project directory (current working directory) to direc‐
        -toEPS [file.eps]
               Generate EPS (to file.eps or stdout when no file name was given)
               and quit.
        -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).
        -toPNG file.png
               Generate PNG format to file.png and quit.
        -toPS []
               Generate PostScript (to 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
               on-line help.
               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.
