       nytidy - tool to clean up specialized-format patches


       nytidy old new options [ print ] [ .go ]


       nytidy  is  a  tool in the Nypatchy suite of programs for working with Patchy Master Files
       (PAM files); see nypatchy(1).  Specifically, it will make a cleaned-up copy of a PAM file.
       Changes  include  removal  of  trailing  whitespace  on each line, removal of trailing and
       leading comment lines (only in FORTRAN decks), and update of some built-in sequences.


       The parameter old is the name of the original PAM file (a default extension of  ".car"  is
       assumed),  while  new  is  the name of the new cleaned PAM file to create.  (If new is not
       given or is given as "-"  then  the  original  file  will  be  overwritten;  this  may  be
       dangerous.)   print  is  the  file  to which informational messages should be written (the
       default is standard output if omitted), and options  is  a  sequence  of  single-character

       The  command should be ended with ".go" unless one wants to enter the Nypatchy interactive


       Note that options should be  given  as  a  single  string  of  characters  with  no  space
       separation  and  no  use  of  the  - character (except that it can be used in place of the
       options field if no options are desired).  Alphabetic options are not case-sensitive.

       C      Assume the original file is a CMZ output file.

       H      Print help information only.

       V      "verbose" - Print each change.

       +      Inhibit the initial page-eject.
