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.
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.
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!)
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
dzedit tries to read startup commands from this file in the
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 <firstname.lastname@example.org> for
the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
