NAME
       gnumeric	- a GNOME spreadsheet application.

SYNOPSIS
       gnumeric	[OPTIONS] [files ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Gnumeric	 is  a	powerful  spreadsheet  program	created	 by  the GNOME
       project.	Gnumeric intends to compete with  commercial  spreadsheets  by
       becoming	fully compatible with Microsoft	Excel(TM) and through the sup-
       port of most popular spreadsheet	file formats such as Excel(TM),	 Lotus
       1-2-3(TM), Applix(TM), Sylk(TM),	XBase(TM), Oleo(TM) and	OpenOffice.org
       formats.

       Gnumeric	supports advanced calculations	using  statistical,  financial
       and  database  access  functions. Plotting data is supported through an
       incomplete but powerful plotting	system.	A plugin system	 extends  gnu-
       meric  ,	 for  instance	enabling  the  export  of  data	 to  the LaTeX
       \longtable format. Plugins can be used to define	custom	functionality.
       A  rudimentary scripting	API for	the Python language exists and will be
       extended	in the near future. Since gnumeric is free software,  gnumeric
       can also	be extended directly at	the source code	level by any competent
       programmer.

       The program can be started from the command line	as  gnumeric  or  from
       one  of	the menus provided by the underlying platform. When started on
       the command line, gnumeric may be followed by the options listed	 below
       and  possibly  the  names of files in various spreadsheet formats which
       will then be opened immediately.	For instance, the command:

	   gnumeric myfile.gnumeric

       will launch gnumeric and	open the file  called  "myfile.gnumeric".  The
       default	gnumeric  file	format	is in extensible markup	language (XML)
       which subsequently has been compressed with gzip.

USER OPTIONS
       This program follows the	usual GNU command  line	 syntax,  with	single
       letter  options	starting  with	a single dash (`-') and	longer options
       starting	with two dashes	(`--').

   Help	options
       -?, --help Show help message.

       --usage
	      Displays a brief usage message.

   Gnumeric options
       -v, --version
	      Displays the version number of the installed  instance  of  gnu-
	      meric.

       --no-splash
	      Start  gnumeric  without	showing	the splash screen.  The	splash
	      screen is	normally shown if loading files	takes too long.

   Options for window placement
       -g, --geometry=WIDTHxHEIGHT+XOFF+YOFF
	      Set the size and position	of the first window. All units are  in
	      pixels.  The  X offset is	from the left hand side	of the screen,
	      the Y offset is  from  the  top  of  the	screen.	 For  example,
	      -g=800x600+20+30	will open a gnumeric window 800	pixels wide by
	      600 pixels high, with the	left edge of gnumeric 20  pixels  from
	      the  left	 of  the screen	and the	top edge of gnumeric 30	pixels
	      from the top of the screen.

       --display=DISPLAY
	      X	display	to use,	where DISPLAY has the  form  machinename:Xdis-
	      play.Screen. Note	that the machine displaying gnumeric must have
	      granted the machine running gnumeric the right to	 display  (see
	      xhost).

       --screen=SCREEN
	      X	 screen	 to  use, a more compact form of the functionality de-
	      scribed above.
