Name
       dxvdoc - invokes CDA Viewer for DECwindows displays

Syntax
       dxvdoc [ -f format ] [ -O options_file ]  [-r] [-w paper_width] [-h paper_height] inputfile

Description
       The  command  invokes  the  CDA	Viewer, which enables you to view the input file on a workstation running DECwindows.  If inputfile is not
       specified, reads from standard input.  The window contains a menu bar with menu items that allow you to view additional	documents,  change
       processing options, close open documents, or exit.

       If you invoke with no input file argument, you can specify the first document using the file selection box.  If you want to read from stan-
       dard input, you must enter "-" as the file argument. For example:

	      % cdoc -s text file.lis | dxvdoc -

Options
       -f format	   Specifies the format of inputfile and invokes an appropriate input converter as part of CDA. The ddif, dtif,  and  text
			   converters  are  provided  in  the base system kit. Additional converters can be added by the CDA Converter Library and
			   other layered products.  Contact your system manager for a complete list of input formats supported on your system. The
			   default format is ddif.

       -O options_file	   Names  the  file  passed to the input converter to control specific processing options in that converter. Refer to your
			   documentation set for a description of converter options.

			   The options file has a default file type of .cda_options. Each line of the options file specifies a	format	name  that
			   can	optionally be followed by _input or _output to restrict the option to either input or output. The second word is a
			   valid option preceded by one or more spaces, tabs, or a slash (/) and can contain upper- and  lowercase  letters,  num-
			   bers, dollar signs, and underlines. The case of letters is not significant. If an option requires a value, then spaces,
			   tabs, or an equal sign can separate the option from the value.

			   Each line can optionally be preceded by spaces and tabs and can be terminated by any character other  than  those  that
			   can	be used to specify the format names and options. The syntax and interpretation of the text that follows the format
			   name is specified by the supplier of the front and back ends for the specified format.

			   To specify several options for the same input or output format, specify one option on a line. If an invalid option  for
			   an input or output format or an invalid value for an option is specified, the option may be ignored or an error message
			   may be returned. Each input or output format that supports processing options specifies  any  restrictions  or  special
			   formats required when specifying options.

			   By  default,  any  messages	that  occur during processing of the options file are written to the system standard error
			   location.  For those input formats that support a LOG option, messages can be directed to a log file.

       -r		   Specifies that the CDA Viewer is to override the format of the document. If the - -r qualifier is  not  specified,  the
			   CDA Viewer retains the formatting information stored in the document.

       -w paper_width	   Specifies  the  paper width in units of characters. Each character unit translates to 720 centipoints (7200 centipoints
			   per inch or 10 characters per inch horizontally). The -w qualifier always specifies	the  fallback  formatted  document
			   page width to be used when the -r (override format) qualifier is specified or when the document has no inherent format.
			   If the -w qualifier is not specified and if the document has no inherent format, the default width  is  85  characters,
			   which is equivalent to the default page width of 8.5 inches.

       -h paper_height	   Specifies the paper height in units of characters. Each character unit translates to 1200 centipoints (7200 centipoints
			   per inch or 6 characters per inch vertically). The -h qualifier always specifies the fallback formatted  document  page
			   height  to be used when the -r (override format) qualifier is specified or when the document has no inherent format. If
			   the -h qualifier is not specified and if the document has no inherent format, the default height is 66 lines, which	is
			   equivalent to the default page height of 11 inches.

       Command line parameters pertaining to XtInitialize() are also supported by dxvdoc (for example, -d node::0).
