       dtcreate	-- The CDE Action and Datatype creation	client.

       dtcreate	[_filename_]

       The  CreateAction client	is used	to create actions and datatypes	to in-
       tegrate an application into the CDE.  CreateAction  provides  the  most
       commonly	 needed	functions including the	creation of actions for	an ap-
       plication, creation of the associated datatypes for  the	 application's
       data  files,  and the ability to	specify	the Open and Print actions for
       those datatypes.	The output from	this tool is a actions	and  datatypes
       definition  file	placed within the users	$HOME/.dt/ types directory and
       an action file that is placed in	the users $HOME	 directory.  CreateAc-
       tion  also  provides the	ability	to edit	a action and datatypes defini-
       tion file that was created using	this tool.

	  o  Creating of actions to represent  applications,  commands,	 shell
	     scripts, etc.

	     CDE's managers such as the	File Manager.

	  o  Modifying of actions and datatypes	 definition  files  that  were
	     created using this	tool.
