       gxint - load and run an interactive GEANT application


       gxint [options] file(s)


       gxint is a script to load and run a GEANT application, which is usually
       in the form of Fortran source code.  The desired routines are given  in


       -d driver
              Specify  a  graphics driver.  The available options on Linux are
              X11 and Motif (which should also work with lesstif). X11 is  the

       -g geant_version
              Specify  the  version of GEANT to use.  Current default is 3.21.
              This option only makes sense  if  you  have  installed  a  GEANT
              version other than 3.21 (i.e. one not packaged by Debian).

       -h host
              Useful with the -d X11 option only.  Specifies the hostname used
              for the display; syntax is identical with that of $DISPLAY.   If
              no hostname is specified, the value of $DISPLAY is used.

       -l library
              Specify  additional  libraries.   This option may be repeated to
              add several libs.

       -L path
              Additional loader search path.  Useful if  additional  libraries
              are  specified with -l option.  This option may be repeated with
              more than one pathname.

       -m     Do NOT use main program from cernlib area.

       -o outputfile
              Do not immediately run GEANT, but instead produce an  executable
              file  named  outputfile.   If  "-o" is not given, the executable
              file will be created in $HOME, named  GEANTpid  (pid  being  the
              process ID of gxint), and run automatically.

       -v version
              Specify  version of $CERN_LEVEL.  This is meaningless unless you
              have installed an upstream version of CERNLIB (i.e. not packaged
              by           Debian);           see           the           file

       -?, --help
              Show a summary of options.


       cernlib(1) - script to list required -l and -L options given a list  of
       CERN libraries

       /usr/share/doc/cernlib-base/README.Debian  describes  how one might use
       the -v flag with Debian’s versions of the cernlib and gxint scripts  if
       one has an upstream version of CERNLIB installed.

       CERNLIB  documentation  for  all  related  libraries  and  programs  is
       available at the following URL:
