 NAME
      beav - binary file editor and viewer

 SYNOPSIS
      beav [file...]

 DESCRIPTION
      This is a brief description of the minimal set of commands that are
      necessary to start using beav effectively.  For more information,
      review the file /usr/share/doc/beav/beav140.txt.gz.

      The file-visit command, Ctl-X Ctl-V, can be used to read a file in for
      editing.   The file can also be read in from the command line; beav
      <edit_file>.

      Data is displayed in one or more windows.  These commands can be used
      to navigate around the windows.

           move-back-char      Ctl-B     moves left
           move-back-line      Ctl-P     moves up
           move-forw-char      Ctl-F     moves right
           move-forw-line      Ctl-N     moves down
           window-delete       Ctl-X 0   delete window
           window-expand       Ctl-X 1   expand window

      The move-to-byte command, Ctl-X G, will prompt you for a byte position
      to move to.

      These commands will insert a zero byte at the cursor position or
      delete the byte at that position.

           insert-unit         Ctl-X I
           delete-forw-unit    Esc D

      The file-save command, Ctl-X Ctl-S, will save the data to the file if
      a change has been made.

      The help command, Esc ?, will display a list of all commands and their
      current key bindings.

      The abort-cmd command, Ctl-G, will abort any command that is in
      operation.

      The quit-no-save command, Ctl-X Ctl-C, will exit beav.  If there is
      any data that has not been saved you will be warned.
