       GNU TeXmacs - a WYSIWYG mathematical text editor

       texmacs [OPTION]... [SOURCE]...

       GNU  TeXmacs  is	a free scientific text editor, which was both inspired
       by TeX and GNU Emacs. The editor	allows you to write  structured	 docu-
       ments  via  a  wysiwyg (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) and user friendly
       interface.  New styles may be created by	the user. The  program	imple-
       ments high-quality typesetting algorithms and TeX fonts,	which help you
       to produce professionally looking documents.

       The high	typesetting quality still goes through for automatically  gen-
       erated  formulas, which makes TeXmacs suitable as an interface for com-
       puter algebra systems. TeXmacs also supports the	Guile/Scheme extension
       language,  so  that  you	may customize the interface and	write your own
       extensions to the editor.

       TeXmacs currently runs on PC's and PPC's	 under	Gnu/linux  (a  >200MHz
       processor  and  >32Mb  of memory	are recommended) and on	sun computers.
       Converters exist	for TeX/LaTeX  and  they  are  under  development  for
       Html/Mathml/Xml.	 In the	future,	TeXmacs	is planned to evoluate towards
       a complete scientific office  suite,  with  spreadsheet	capacities,  a
       technical drawing editor	and a presentation mode.

       -b [file], --initialize-buffer [file]
	      Uses  [file]  as	a guile/scheme initialization file for TeXmacs

       -c [in] [out], --convert	[in] [out]
	      Convert input file [in] into output file [out].  The  file  for-
	      mats  are	 determined  automatically  from the suffixes and as a
	      function of the contents of [in].	 The argument list may contain
	      several conversion instructions and you will usually want	to use
	      this option in combination with --quit.

       -d, --debug
	      Display most important debugging information.

	      Display all widget events.

	      Display all communicated data between TeXmacs  and  extern  sys-

	      Turn all debugging flags on.

	      This option deletes all files in the TeXmacs cache. TeXmacs uses
	      several caches for speeding up font, file, directory  and	 style
	      file  loading.   However,	 these	optimizations may be incorrect
	      when the user manually changes files in the TeXmacs distribution
	      or when new fonts	are added.  This is rarely the case for	normal
	      users, but sometimes necessary for TeXmacs developers.

	      This option is similar to	--delete-cache,	but only  deletes  the
	      cache for	accelerated help file loading.

	      This  option  is similar to --delete-cache, but only deletes the
	      cache for	accelerated file loading.

	      This option is similar to	--delete-cache,	but only  deletes  the
	      cache for	accelerated font loading.

	      This  option  is similar to --delete-cache, but only deletes the
	      cache for	accelerated style file loading.

       -fn [font], --font [font]
	      Sets the default TeX fonts for menus  and	 so  to	 [font].   The
	      [font]	is    of    the	   form	   [name],   [name][size]   or
	      [name][size]@[dpi].  For instance, ecss11@400 would give a  sans
	      serif  font  at  400  dpi.  By default, the [size] is 11 and the
	      [dpi] 300.

       -g [geom], --geometry [geom]
	      Suggested	geometry for TeXmacs windows.  Here [geom]  may	 be  a
	      size  [width  x height] in pixels, like in `texmacs -g 600x480'.
	      It may also take the form	 [width	 x  height  [+|-]  xoff	 [+|-]
	      yoff], like in `texmacs -g 800x600-100+100'.

       -h, --help
	      Display  a help message, which lists the command line options of

       -i [file], --initialize [file]
	      Uses [file] as a guile/scheme initialization file	for TeXmacs.

       -Oc, --no-char-clipping
	      Faster but less perfect displaying of anti-aliased fonts.

       +Oc, --char-clipping
	      High quality displaying of anti-aliased fonts (default).

       -p, --path
	      Echo the TeXmacs path.

       -q, --quit
	      Shortcut for the option -x "(quit-TeXmacs)".

       -r, --reverse
	      Reverse video mode. This mode inverts and	weakens	the  intensity
	      of all colors.  This option is only available as a global	start-
	      up option. You cannot change it while running TeXmacs.

       -s, --silent
	      Silent execution:	less messages to standard output.

       -S, --setup
	      Rerun the	setup program before starting TeXmacs.	The setup pro-
	      gram  analyzes your TeX/LaTeX distribution and the plugins which
	      are installed on your system.

       -v, --version
	      Display the current TeXmacs version.

       -V, --verbose
	      Display some informative messages.

       -x, --execute [cmd]
	      Execute the scheme command [cmd] just  after  startup.   If  you
	      specify  several	-x options, then the corresponding scheme com-
	      mands are	executed in the	same order.
