       For  up to date documentation please refer to the Documentation section
       of this man page.

       LifeLines is  a  program  to  manipulate  genealogical  information  in
       lineage-linked GEDCOM format. It has a curses interface, and a built-in
       interpreter for its own genealogical report language.


       The following options are some of the options available for llines.

       -C     Specify configuration file location.

       -F     Finnish option (only available if compiled with Finnish flag)

       -I     Specify a user property (e.g. -ILLEDITOR=gvim)

       -a     Log dynamic memory operation (for debugging)

       -c     Supply cache values (eg, -ci400,4000f400,4000 sets direct indi &
              fam caches to 400, and indirect indi & fam caches to 4000)

       -d     Developmental/debug mode (signals are not caught)

       -f     Force  open  a  database (only for use if reader/writer count is

       -i     Open database with immutable access (no protection against other
              access -- for use on read-only media)

       -k     Always  show  key values (normally key is not shown if a REFN is

       -l     Lock (-ly) or unlock (-ln) a database for  use  with  read  only
              media (access to a locked database is treated as immutable)

       -n     Do not use traditional family rules

       -o     Specify program output filename (eg, -o/tmp/mytests)

       -r     Open  database  with  read-only  access  (protect  against other
              writer access)

              Specify window size (eg, -u120,34 specifies 120  columns  by  34

       -w     Open  database  with  writeable  access  (protecte against other
              reader or writer access)

       -x     Execute a single lifelines report program directly

       -z     Use normal ASCII characters for drawing lines in user  interface
              rather than the vt100 special characters

       -?     Display options summary, (on UNIX or Linux use the -h option)

       llexec  is  a  version  of  llines  without the user interface for non-
       interactive processing of report programs. (Typically used with the  -x

       dbverify  is  a  utility  program  to  verify Lifelines databases.  For
       information about options, run dbverify with the -h option.


              Possible locations for Lifelines  configuration  file  Lifelines
              looks for a configuration file for various settings. See section
              System And User Properties in the userguide for details.


       The  LifeLines  documentation  should  be  installed  as  part  of  the
       installation,   and   may   also   be   viewed  at  the  project  site:   Look  for  ll-userguide   and   ll-
       reportmanual  (with  appropriate  extensions  for  text,  html  and pdf
       formats).  The normal installation process includes a large  number  of
       sample  report  programs that you can customize to suit your needs.  In
       the directory containing these reports you should  find  a  file  named
       index.html which gives a very brief summary of each report.
