XTide is a package that provides tide and current predictions in a wide variety of formats. Graphs, text listings, and calendars can be generated, or a tide clock can be provided on your desktop. XTide can work with X-windows, plain text terminals, or the web. This is accomplished with three separate programs: the interactive interface (xtide), the non-interactive or command line interface (tide), and the web interface (xttpd). tide is the non-interactive command line client for XTide 2. For a complete discussion, please see the verbose documentation at http://www.flaterco.com/xtide/.
Unless a configuration file /etc/xtide.conf is supplied, you must set the environment variable HFILE_PATH to point to the harmonics files that should have been installed along with the xtide program. Example: export HFILE_PATH=/usr/local/share/xtide/harmonics.tcd If a configuration file is used, the first line should consist of the colon-separated list of harmonics files (e.g. the HFILE_PATH line above without the "export HFILE_PATH=" part). The environment variable takes precedence over the configuration file. Also, note that on Debian systems the tidal harmonics data file are stored in /usr/share/xtide instead of /usr/local/share/xtide as used above. Set the environment variable XTIDE_DEFAULT_LOCATION to the name of your favorite place if you want to skip the location-choosing step.
-b ``YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM'' Specify the begin (start) time for predictions using the ISO 8601 compliant format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM, where hours range from 00 to 23. The timestamp is in the local time zone for the location, or in UTC if the -z setting is engaged. If clock mode is selected or if no -b is supplied, the current time will be used. -ch pixels Height for tide clocks (default 312 pixels). -cw pixels Width for tide clocks (default 84 pixels). -dc color Daytime background color in tide graphs (default SkyBlue). -Dc color Color of datum line in tide graphs (default white). -df ``format-string'' strftime(3) style format string for printing dates (default %Y-%m-%d). -e ``YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM'' Specify the end (stop) time for predictions in banner, calendar, alt. calendar, medium rare, plain, raw, or stats mode. Does not apply in graph and clock modes: the effective end time for graph and clock modes is entirely determined by the start time (-b), the width (-cw, -gw or -tw), and the aspect (-ga). The format and time zone are the same as for -b. If no -e is supplied, the end time will be set to four days after the begin time. -ec color Foreground in tide graphs during outgoing tide (default SeaGreen). -el y|n Select whether or not to draw datum and middle-level lines in tide graphs (default n). -em pSsMm Events to suppress (p = phase of moon, S = sunrise, s = sunset, M = moonrise, m = moonset), or x to suppress none. E.g, to suppress all sun and moon events, set eventmask to the value pSsMm. -f c|h|i|l|p|t Specify the output format as CSV, HTML, iCalendar, LaTeX, PNG, or text. The default is text. -fc color Foreground in tide graphs during incoming tide (default Blue). -fg color Color of text and other notations (default black). -ga aspect Aspect for tide graphs, clocks, and banners (default 1.0). This controls not the width or height of the window but rather the relative scaling of the X and Y axes in the plot of the tide curve. -gh pixels Height for tide graphs (default 312 pixels). -gt y|n Select whether or not to label tenths of units in tide graphs (default n). -gw pixels Width for tide graphs (default 960 pixels). -hf ``format-string'' strftime(3) style format string for printing hour labels on time axis (default %l). -in y|n Select whether or not to use inferred values for some constituents (default n). For expert use only. -l ``location name'' Specify a location for tide predictions. -lw pixels Width for lines in tide graphs with -nf (default 2.5 pixels). -m a|b|c|C|g|k|l|m|p|r|s Specify mode to be about, banner, calendar, alt. calendar, graph, clock, list, medium rare, plain, raw, or stats. The default is plain. -mc color Color of mark line in graphs (default red). -Mc color Color of middle-level line in tide graphs (default yellow). -ml [-]N.NN(ft|m|kt) Specify the mark level to be used in predictions. The predictions will include the times when the tide level crosses the mark. Not supported in clock mode. Example usage: -ml -0.25ft -nc color Nighttime background color in tide graphs (default DeepSkyBlue). -nf y|n Select whether or not to draw tide graphs as line graphs (default n). -o ``filename'' Redirect output to the specified file (appends). -ph mm Nominal length of paper in LaTeX output (default 420 mm). This need not match your actual paper; use "Shrink oversized pages" in print options. -pm mm Nominal width of top, bottom, left and right margins in LaTeX output (default 10 mm). Actual width will depend on print scaling. -pw mm Nominal width of paper in LaTeX output (default 297 mm). This need not match your actual paper; use "Shrink oversized pages" in print options. -s ``HH:MM'' Specify the step interval, in hours and minutes, for raw or medium rare mode predictions. The default is one hour. -tf ``format-string'' strftime(3) style format string for printing times (default %l:%M %p %Z). -tl y|n Select whether or not to draw depth lines on top of the tide graph (default n). -th characters Height of ASCII graphs and clocks (default 24 characters). -tw characters Width of ASCII graphs, clocks, banners, and calendars (default 79 characters). -u ft|m Preferred units of length (default no preference). -v Print version string and exit. -z y|n Select whether or not to coerce all time zones to UTC (default n).
