paw - invoke the "Physics Analysis Workstation" package


paw [-b macro_name] [-w workstation_type] [-n] paw++ [-b macro_name] [-n]


PAW is an interactive utility for visualizing experimental data on a computer graphics display. It may be run in batch mode if desired for very large and time consuming data analyses; typically, however, the user will decide on an analysis procedure interactively before running a batch job. PAW combines a handful of CERN High Energy Physics Library systems that may also be used individually in software that processes and displays data. The purpose of PAW is to pro‐ vide many common analysis and display procedures that would be duplicated needlessly by individual programmers, to supply a flexible way to invoke these common procedures, and yet also to allow user customization where necessary. Paw++ is a Motif-based version of PAW. OPTIONS When paw starts, the macro pawlogon.kumac in the current directory is executed. If this macro doesn't exist the system tries to execute the macro .pawlogon.kumac in the home directory. -n The macro pawlogon is not executed. -b macro_name The macro specified is executed in batch mode and paw exits when the macro ends. -w workstation_type PAW starts immediately without prompting for the workstation type. If worksta‐ tion_type = 0, paw starts without graphics. When the X11 version of paw is used, a list of 10 valid workstation types is pro‐ vided in the file higz_windows.dat. By default this file is in the current direc‐ tory. If it is not, the one in the home directory is used. If it is not in the home directory, one is automatically created in the current directory. Each line in this file describes the position and the size of the window. To access one of the described windows it is enough to give the line number in reply to the prompt "Workstation type"


HIGZPRINTER Specifies the command line executed when the command PICTURE/PRINT is invoked. KUIPPAGER, PAGER Checked in this order to determine what pager program to use. If nei‐ ther are set, 'sensible-pager' is used in Debian. KUIPEDITOR, EDITOR Checked in this order to determine what editor to use. If neither are set, 'sensible-editor' is used in Debian. KUIPPSVIEWER, PSVIEWER Checked in this order to determine the program to use for viewing PostScript. If neither are set, 'gv' is used. $ENV() Any environment variable can be accessed in paw with the function $ENV().
