paw - invoke the "Physics Analysis Workstation" package
paw [-b macro_name] [-w workstation_type] [-n]
paw++ [-b macro_name] [-n]
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.
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.
The macro specified is executed in batch mode and paw exits
when the macro ends.
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
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
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().
