NAME
       paint_changed_characters,  paicc

SYNOPSIS
       paicc [ -h -c -mui -t -csae]

DESCRIPTION
       This  command  turns  the  static output	from one or more Unix commands
       into a dynamic, pageable, real-time  display.   You  specify  the  com-
       mand(s) and the delay period between screen refreshes and Paint Changed
       Characters does the rest, including optimizations  to  minimize	cursor
       movement	 and  the  number of transmitted characters.  (Patterned after
       the CYBIL version for NOS/VE.)

       The environment variable	SHELL determines which shell will execute  the
       command(s).  If it is not defined /bin/sh is assumed.

       The environment variable	D_PAICC_C can be defined to change the default
       command "ps -el".

	 Example:

	   paicc   # execute ps	-el every second,
		   # (or the default command)

	   paicc -c "hostname>o;ps -ef>>o;cat o" -mui 3000
		   # execute ps	-ef every 3 seconds
		   # with hostname on first line

OPTIONS
       -help, h, usage_help, full_help:	Display	Command	Information

	 Display information about this	command, which includes
	 a command description with examples, plus a synopsis of
	 the command line parameters.  If you specify -full_help
	 rather	than -help complete parameter help is displayed
	 if it's available.

       -command, c: string = D_PAICC_C,	"ps -el"

	 Specifies the command to periodically execute.	 You can
	 change	the default value "ps -el" by defining the
	 environment variable D_PAICC_C.

       -millisecond_update_interval, mui: integer = D_PAICC_MUI, 1000

	 Specifies the number of milliseconds between command
	 executions.  1000 milliseconds	= 1 second.  You can
	 change	the default value by defining D_PAICC_MUI.

       -title, t: boolean = D_PAICC_T, TRUE

	 Specifies whether to display the paint_changed_characters
	 title line.  Define D_PAICC_T to change the default.

       -clear_screen_at_end, csae: boolean = D_PAICC_CSAE, TRUE

	 Specifies whether or not a final 'screen erase' is done
	 when you exit paint_changed_characters.  Remember, if you
	 don't like the	default	value, define the environment
	 variable D_PAICC_CSAE=NO.
