 xtem(l)                         Version: 8                          xtem(l)
                                June 1, 2000



 NAME
      xtem - TeX menu for the X Window System

 SYNTAX
      xtem [ -l language ] [ texfilename[.suffix] ]

 DESCRIPTION
      xtem is an X11 program that makes it easy to use TeX (incl. editing,
      previewing, printer selection, printing, spell checking etc.) with a
      minimum of unix knowledge and no knowledge of the specific
      installation.  Syntax help to the LaTeX commands (including complete
      examples) are presented during editing.  xtem runs on workstations
      (and X-terminals) running the X Window System and Tcl/Tk.  The user
      may easily select and save his preferences (such as editor, previewer
      etc.).

 DOCUMENTATION
      Besides this manual page there exists an introductional description (a
      postscript file which may be copied from the SOURCE given below).  For
      the implementator a README is included in the xtem package.  The most
      important documentation is the online documentation, which is given in
      the form of context sensitive helps.

 OPTIONS
      -l language  Where language is the language which is used in xtem
                   (buttons, help texts etc.).  At the moment the following
                   languages are available: English and German, i.e.
                   language may get one of the values: english, german or
                   deutsch (=german).  The default value depends on the
                   local implementation.

 FONTS
      Font settings are first taken from file
      .../xtem/locals_language/install.vst (or from the file specified by
      the environment variable XTEMINSTALL). After this .Xdefaults (or any
      other file specified by the environment variable XTEMXDEFAULTS) is
      scanned for xtem font specifications.  By this some or all fonts
      specified in /install.vst can be overwritten.  In the following we
      give examples for font specifications in .Xdefaults (for details see
      the "xtem Installation and Maintenance Guide" and the unix program
      xfontsel for a lookup for fonts installed at your platform):

      In a similar way you can set colors:
       xtem*background:  black
       xtem*foreground:  white
       xtem*activeBackground:  green
       xtem*activeForeground:  sienna
       xtem*disabledForeground:  yellow
       xtem*highlightColor:  red
       xtem*highlightBackground:  DarkGreen
       xtem*insertBackground:  MidnightBlue
       xtem*selectBackground:  azure
       xtem*selectColor:  cyan
       xtem*selectForeground:  blue
       xtem*troughColor:  magenta
       xtem.erroredit.error.background:  green
       xtem.erroredit.error.foreground:  yellow

      Yet we doubt that you like these odd settings --- they are for
      demonstration of the effects only.  And these setting are not used for
      a second call of xtem (in parallel to an existing xtem menu); for such
      parallel existing menus you have (at the moment) to add additional
      sets using xtem1, xtem2, ... instead of xtem.


 ENVIRONMENTS
      HOME              this environment variable, specifying the home
                        directory, must be specified for xtem.

      XTEMVSTDIR        by this environment variable a directory can be
                        specified which is scanned for setting files to
                        override the local installation common setting
                        files.

      XTEMINSTALL       by this environment variable a file may be specified
                        which overrides the local installation specific file
                        install.vst

      XTEMXDEFAULTS     by this environment variable an alternative file to
                        .Xdefaults can be specified which is scanned for the
                        xtem font settings.

      XTEMPATH          by this environment variable a directory may be
                        specified which overrides the local installation
