       dzedit - the CERN ZEBRA documentation editor


       dzedit  [ options ]


       dzeX11  is  an interactive interface to the DZDOC (ZEBRA documentation)
       system developed at CERN.  dzedit is a  wrapper  script  around  dzeX11
       that  allows  one to set a few environment options.  ZEBRA, part of the
       Packlib library, permits a developer to create complex data  structures
       in  the  FORTRAN  77 language; the DZDOC system allows the developer to
       generate and maintain documentation of ZEBRA data structures.


       -d driver
              Use the graphics driver  driver,  i.e.,  have  dzedit  call  the
              program  dzedriver.   The default is "X11".  You are exceedingly
              unlikely to want anything other than the default.

       -h host
              Give the host to open the  window  on.   This  is  the  same  as
              setting  the  environment  variable $DISPLAY to "host:0.0".  You
              don't need to do so if you  are  logged  on  to  a  remote  host
              through SSH (if you are using telnet, shame on you!)

       -v version
              Specify the version of CERNLIB to use.  This only makes sense if
              you have a version of CERNLIB directly from CERN installed.   In
              this  case  you  should  also  have set the environment variable
              $CERN.  Then dzedit will look for  the  dzeX11  program  in  the
              directory $CERN/<version>/bin/.


              dzedit  tries  to  read  startup  commands from this file in the
              current directory.

              dzedit stores the names of the ZEBRA file and documentation file
              in this file in the current directory.

              At  the  end of a session, dzedit outputs this file containing a
              transcript of the commands used during the session.


       The ZEBRA manual:
       (specifically, chapter 16 is about DZDOC).


       This man page is essentially useless because the section of  the  ZEBRA
       manual about DZDOC is incomprehensible and there are no tutorials about
       it.  Anyone who wants to provide a better man page is welcome to do so.


       This manual page was written by Kevin McCarty <> for
       the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
