       gv-update-userconfig - update ~/.gv config file

       gv-update-userconfig [filename]

       gv-update-userconfig is a simple	script to update an .gv	config file to
       the current version of gv(1).

       You can specify a file which is used instead of .gv by  using  the  op-
       tional  filename	 argument.  This is useful if the environment variable
       XUSERSEARCHPATH is used.

       This is done by removing	all entries known to cause problems  with  the
       current version of GNU gv (i.e. the one the version of this program be-
       longs to) and updating the version information in that file.  This  re-
       sets all	problematic items back to the default values.

       -h, --help, --usage
	      displays a short help message

       -r     removes  all  resources  from  ~/.gv  that equal the default re-
	      sources being shipped with GNU gv	(ignoring whitespaces).

       -n     switches to alternative navigation by adding resp. updating nav-
	      igation resources	to ~/.gv, i. e.	after each page	switch (except
	      if selected by the page number) the page is scrolled to top  (if
	      switching	forward) resp. to the bottom (if switching backward).

       -N     switches to standard navigation by adding	resp. updating naviga-
	      tion resources to	~/.gv.

       -s     removes navigation resources from	~/.gv  and  therefore  enables
	      standard navigation.

       -i     updates  translation file. Using the optional filename parameter
	      is strongly recommended for using	this option. This option  can-
	      not be used together with	any of the other options.

       The $(HOME)/.gv file is written by GNU gv when activating the Save but-
       ton in one of the configuration dialogs.

       The values in there are used, if	there is no display-specific  resource
       value  (loaded  from  $(HOME)/.Xresources  at  login  time  or manually

       Sometimes older values miss things needed by the	new  GNU  gv  to  work
       properly.  This GNU gv will notice old (or missing) version information
       in this file and	refuse to start	until fixed.

       gv(1), xrdb(1).
