NAME

       paw - invoke the "Physics Analysis Workstation" package

SYNOPSIS

       paw [-b macro_name] [-w workstation_type] [-n]

       paw++ [-b macro_name] [-n]

DESCRIPTION

       PAW  is  an  interactive utility for visualizing experimental data on a
       computer graphics display. It may be run in batch mode if  desired  for
       very  large  and  time consuming data analyses; typically, however, the
       user will decide on an analysis procedure interactively before  running
       a batch job.

       PAW combines a handful of CERN High Energy Physics Library systems that
       may also be used individually in software that processes  and  displays
       data.   The  purpose  of  PAW  is  to  provide many common analysis and
       display procedures that would be duplicated  needlessly  by  individual
       programmers,   to   supply  a  flexible  way  to  invoke  these  common
       procedures, and yet also to allow user customization where necessary.

       Paw++ is a Motif-based version of PAW.

   OPTIONS
       When paw starts, the macro pawlogon.kumac in the current  directory  is
       executed.  If  this macro doesn't exist the system tries to execute the
       macro .pawlogon.kumac in the home directory.

       -n      The macro pawlogon is not executed.

       -b macro_name
               The macro specified is executed in batch  mode  and  paw  exits
               when the macro ends.

       -w workstation_type
               PAW  starts  immediately  without prompting for the workstation
               type.  If workstation_type = 0, paw starts without graphics.

               When the X11 version of  paw  is  used,  a  list  of  10  valid
               workstation types is provided in the file higz_windows.dat.  By
               default this file is in the current directory. If  it  is  not,
               the one in the home directory is used. If it is not in the home
               directory,  one  is  automatically  created  in   the   current
               directory.   Each  line in this file describes the position and
               the size of the window. To access one of the described  windows
               it  is  enough  to  give the line number in reply to the prompt
               "Workstation type"

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       HIGZPRINTER         Specifies  the  command  line  executed  when   the
                           command PICTURE/PRINT is invoked.

       KUIPPAGER, PAGER    Checked  in  this  order  to  determine  what pager
                           program   to   use.    If    neither    are    set,
                           'sensible-pager' is used in Debian.

       KUIPEDITOR, EDITOR  Checked  in  this order to determine what editor to
                           use.  If neither are set, 'sensible-editor' is used
                           in Debian.

       KUIPPSVIEWER, PSVIEWER
                           Checked  in  this order to determine the program to
                           use for viewing PostScript.  If  neither  are  set,
                           'gv' is used.

       $ENV()              Any  environment  variable  can  be accessed in paw
                           with the function $ENV().
