       gperiodic - periodic table application


       gperiodic [option(s)] [element_symbol | atomic_number]


       gperiodic  is  a  small X/GTK+-based program which allows you to browse through a periodic
       table of chemical elements,  and  view  somewhat  detailed  information  on  each  of  the
       elements.  118 elements are currently listed.


       Zero options will start gperiodic.

       -h     Show the help screen.

       -c <Temp>
              Color the elements according to their phase at temperature <Temp> in Kelvins.

       -D     Dump the periodic table.

       -v     Be verbose.

       Possible arguments:

       element_symbol | atomic_number
              Display  information on the element with the given element symbol or atomic number.
              The output is UTF-8 encoded (see Debian bug #466231).


       The program was originally written by Kyle R. Burton. The current author is  Jonas  Frantz
