       dxcardfiler - DECwindows interface to the cardfiler

SYNOPSIS
       dxcardfiler [ flags ]

FLAGS
       Specifies  the color of the window's border (color displays only).  The
       default is specified by means of the Session Manager's Customize Window
       dialog box.  Specifies the color of the window's background (color dis‐
       plays only).  The default is specified by means	of  the	 Session  Man‐
       ager's  Customize  Window  dialog box.  Specifies the display screen on
       which dxcardfiler displays its window.  If the display  option  is  not
       specified,  dxcardfiler	uses the display screen specified by your DIS‐
       PLAY environment variable.  The display option  has  the	 format	 host‐
       name:number.   Using  two colons (::) instead of one (:) indicates that
       DECnet is to be used for transport.   The  default  is  :0.   For  more
       information,  see  X(1X).   This	 option	 is the same as the -d option.

       The default font is menu12.  The default is 6x10.  Specifies the width,
       length, and location of the dxcardfiler window.	If the geometry option
       is not specified, dxcardfiler uses default values.  The geometry option
       has  the format [widthxlength][{+-}x{+-}y].  For more information about
       the screen coordinate system, see X(1X).

DESCRIPTION
       The dxcardfiler command displays an Index window that  provides	access
       to  an  electronic  version  of a set of 3x5 index cards.  You can add,
       delete, rename, duplicate, save, read, search, and print	 these	cards.
       By  organizing  your  index cards into sets, called card files, you can
       keep one group of cards separate from another group.

       The cards, which can hold 4000 characters of text and 64K bits of  DDIF
       image, will appear on your screen to the right of the Index window.

       In  addition,  the  dxcardfiler Index window contains a Help menu that,
       when selected, displays an appropriate help message.

INDEX WINDOW
       The index window lists the names of the current cards.  (You  can  open
       new  or	previously  selected  cards  by choosing Open... from the File
       menu.)  To select and display a card, place the pointer on the name  of
       the  card  and  double-click MB1 (the left button unless you have rede‐
       fined it).  You can also search for specific  cards  by	selecting  the
       card  window and choosing the search menu.  Once you select a card, you
       can  manipulate it by using the items  contained	 in  the  Card	window
       menus.

       The index window contains the following menus:

       File Link Search Card Help

   File Menu
       The File menu contains the following items: Opens an existing card file
       that you specify.  If the specified card file does not  exist,  dxcard‐
       filer asks if you want to open a new database.  If you confirm, dxcard‐
       filer opens a new Index window.	You can begin adding  cards.   If  you
       try  to	open  a card file without first saving any changes to a previ‐
       ously opened file, a dialog box appears asking you whether you want  to
       save  your  changes.  Merges the contents of the current card file with
       another, resulting in a card file that combines and sorts the  contents
       of  both	 files.	 The card file whose contents are merged with the cur‐
       rent card file remains unchanged.  Saves the current card file.	 If  a
       name  has  been specified previously, dxcardfiler uses that name.  If a
       name has not been specified previously, dxcardfiler prompts for	a  new
       name.   Saves  the  current  card  file	under a name that you specify.
       Prints a representation of all  cards  in  the  index  to  the  default
       printer.	  You  can change the default printer by means of the Print...
       option.	Prints the current card file to a device you  specify.	 Saves
       the  cardfiler's	 size  and  position, to use the next time you run the
       cardfiler.  Restores the use of system  defaults	 for  the  cardfiler's
       size  and  position.   Closes  the dxcardfiler window.  If you have not
       saved any changes or additions  to  the	current	 file,	a  dialog  box
       appears asking whether you want to save your changes.

   Link Menu
       The  Link Menu contains the following menu items: Iconifies the current
       application window and invokes the appropriate application  to  display
       the linked information.	Invokes the appropriate application to display
       the linked information, but keeps the current application window	 open.
       Input  focus  remains  in the current application window.  Moves to the
       next step in the currently active navigation path.   Displays  informa‐
       tion  about the links for the selected object and lets you edit certain
       link information.  Shows the history  of	 your  navigation  operations.
       Reverses	 the  most  recent Visit or Go To operation.  Go Back does not
       delete or otherwise affect existing links.  Specifies the source	 of  a
       link.  Select  a linkable object and then choose Start Link in the Link
       menu of the  hyperapplication.	Completes  the	link  using  LinkWorks
       default	values.	 Select	 a linkable object to become the target of the
       link, and then choose Complete Link in the Link menu of the hyperappli‐
       cation.	 Displays a dialog box in which you can edit information about
       the link, and completes the link when you click on OK. Select  a	 link‐
       able  object to become the target of the link, and then choose Complete
       Link... in the Link menu of the hyperapplication.  Specifies  that  the
       highlighting of linked objects be enabled (on) or disabled (off).  This
       item says Turn Highlight On if highlighting is currently disabled,  and
       it  says	 Turn  Highlight  Off  if  highlighting	 is currently enabled.
       Allows you to enable or disable highlighting and to specify which types
       of linkable objects are highlighted when highlighting is enabled.

   Search Menu
       The Search menu contains the following items: Searches the index topics
       for a text string.  Because dxcardfiler treats spaces as text, you  can
       search  for  two	 or more words.	 A dialog box appears that prompts for
       the text string.	 Then, dxcardfiler searches the topics	of  all	 index
       cards  in  the file and displays the first card in your file containing
       the text string.	 Searches the contents of each card in the file for  a
       text  string.   A  dialog box appears that prompts for the text string.
       Then, dxcardfiler searches all index cards in the file and displays the
       first  card  in your file containing the text string.  Searches for the
       next occurrence of the searched for string.

   Card Menu
       The Card menu contains the following item: Opens an  empty  card	 in  a
       Card  window  and displays a dialog box that prompts for the card name.
       After you type the card name, enter any information  belonging  on  the
       index card in the Card window.  On Context gives you on-line help about
       the File, Link, Search, and Card menus.	On Window  gives  you  on-line
       help  about  the	 cardfile window and the card window.  On Help gives a
       brief description on using the Help menu.  On Version gives  you	 soft‐
       ware version and trademark information.

   Card Window
       A  Card window contains a Text window in which the body of the card can
       be created and edited.  The Card	 window	 also  contains	 buttons  that
       allow you to move to the next or the previous cards.  For more informa‐
       tion about the editing commands that can be used in  the	 Text  window,
       see  X(1X).   The name of the card displayed is listed in the title bar
       of the Card window.  A Card window contains the following menus:

   File Menu
       The File menu contains the following items: Includes  into  a  card  an
       image from a DDIF image file, such as one created with dxprint.	Prints
       a representation of a specified card in the index to a device  or  DDIF
       file.  If a device has been specified previously, dxcardfiler uses that
       device.	If a name  has	not  been  specified  previously,  dxcardfiler
       prompts	for  a name.  Prints the current card to a device you specify.
       Closes the Card window.

       text or image from the clipboard.  Select the image part	 of  the  card
       for Cut or Copy.	 Deselect the selected image part of the card.

   Search Menu
       The  Search  menu  allows  you  to search the stack of cards for a text
       string.	Searches the index topics for a text string.  Because  dxcard‐
       filer  treats  spaces as text, you can search for two or more words.  A
       dialog box appears that prompts for the text string.  Then, dxcardfiler
       searches	 the  topics  of  all index cards in the file and displays the
       first card in your file containing the text string.  Searches the  con‐
       tents of each card in the file for a text string.  A dialog box appears
       that prompts for the text string.  Then, dxcardfiler searches all index
       cards  in  the file and displays the first card in your file containing
       the text string.	 Searches for the next occurrence of the searched  for
       string.

   Card Menu
       The  Card  menu	contains the following items: Opens an empty card in a
       Card window and displays a dialog box that prompts for the  card	 name.

       button to search quickly through the stack of cards.

   Next Button
       The Next button lets you view the next card.  Hold down the  button  to
       search quickly through the stack of cards.

X DEFAULTS
       The dxcardfiler application uses the values in the .Xdefaults file when
       you logged in and uses the appropriate resource specification  to  cus‐
       tomize  the  appearance	of  the	 dxcardfiler window.  The format for a
       resource specification in the .Xdefaults file is:

       [name*]resource:	 value Specifies the  application  name	 or  the  name
       string that restricts the resource assignment to that application or to
       a component of an application.  If this argument is not specified,  the
       resource assignment is globally available to all X applications.	 Spec‐
       ifies the resource.  Specifies the value that is to be assigned to  the
       resource.

       Because	each toolkit-based application can consist of a combination of
       widgets (for example, push buttons and a scroll bar), you can form  the
       name  string by adding widget class and name identifiers to the string.
       For further information about adding class and  name  identifiers,  see
       X(1X).

       For dxcardfiler, the available class identifiers are:

       Cardfiler  CardfilerCard	 cardmainwindow	 indexmainwindow index_menubar
       card_menubar svnList card_text

       The resources available for dxcardfiler are listed in X(1X).

       Each specification included in the .Xdefaults file for the translations
       resource	 modifies  a key setting for the editor that dxcardfiler uses.
       For more information about key and mouse specifications	in  the	 .Xde‐
       faults file, see X(1X).
