       dxvdoc - invokes CDA Viewer for DECwindows Motif displays

       dxvdoc  [  -f  format  ] [ -O options-file ] [-r ] [-w paper-width] [-h
       paper-height] inputfile

       The dxvdoc command invokes the CDA Viewer, which enables	 you  to  view
       compound documents on a workstation running DECwindows Motif.  The dxv‐
       doc 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 dxvdoc with no input file argument, you can  specify  the
       first  document	using  the  file selection box.	 If you want dxvdoc to
       read from standard input, you must enter "-" as the file argument.  For
       example: % cdoc -s text file.lis | dxvdoc - The dxvdoc command does not
       support reading viewing of PostScript files from	 standard  input.  You
       must supply a filename to view PostScript files.

       The  dxvdoc  command  supports  command	line  parameters pertaining to
       XtInitialize().	For example, -d node::0.

       Specifies the format of inputfile and invokes an appropriate input con‐
       verter as part of CDA. The DDIF, DTIF, and TEXT converters are provided
       in the base system kit.	Other products can supply additional  convert‐

	      To  view PostScript files on DECwindows Motif, specify -f ps, if
	      your system is connected to displays with servers	 that  contain
	      the  Display  PostScript	extension.  The	 CDA  Viewer  does not
	      require an input converter to display PostScript files.

	      Contact your system manager for a complete list of input formats
	      supported on your system. The default format is DDIF.  Names the
	      file passed to the input converter to control specific  process‐
	      ing  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.   To
	      restrict	the option to either input or output, follow each line
	      of the options file by _input or _output.	 The second word is  a
	      valid  option  preceded  by one or more spaces, tabs, or a slash
	      (/) and can contain uppercase and	 lowercase  letters,  numbers,
	      dollar signs, and underlines. The case of letters is not signif‐
	      icant. If an option requires a value, then spaces, tabs,	or  an
	      equal sign can separate the option from the value.

	      You  can	precede	 each  line  by spaces and tabs.  To terminate
	      lines, use any character other than those that you use to	 spec‐
	      ify the format names and options.	 The supplier of the front and
	      back ends specifies the syntax and interpretation	 of  the  text
	      that follows the format name.

	      To  specify several options for the same input or output format,
	      specify one option on a line. If you specify an  invalid	option
	      for an input or output format or an invalid value for an option,
	      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.  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.	 Specifies the paper width in units of
	      characters. Each character unit translates  to  720  centipoints
	      (7200  centipoints  per  inch or 10 characters per inch horizon‐
	      tally). 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 for‐
	      mat.  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.
	      Specifies the paper height in units of characters. Each  charac‐
	      ter  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.
