paw++ [-b macro_name] [-n]
PAW is an interactive utility for visualizing experimental data on a computer graphics display. It may be run in batch mode if desired for very large and time consuming data analyses; typically, however, the user will decide on an analysis procedure interactively before running a batch job.
PAW combines a handful of CERN High Energy Physics Library systems that may also be used individually in software that processes and displays data. The purpose of PAW is to provide many common analysis and display procedures that would be duplicated needlessly by individual programmers, to supply a flexible way to invoke these common procedures, and yet also to allow user customization where necessary.
Paw++ is a Motif-based version of PAW.
When paw starts, the macro pawlogon.kumac in the current directory is executed. If this macro doesn't exist the system tries to execute the macro .pawlogon.kumac in the home directory.
When the X11 version of paw is used, a list of 10 valid workstation types is provided in the file higz_windows.dat. By default this file is in the current directory. If it is not, the one in the home directory is used. If it is not in the home directory, one is automatically created in the current directory. Each line in this file describes the position and the size of the window. To access one of the described windows it is enough to give the line number in reply to the prompt "Workstation type"
