face(1)                          User Commands                         face(1)



NAME
       face - executable for the Framed Access Command Environment Interface

SYNOPSIS
       face [-i init_file] [-c command_file] [-a alias_file] [filename...]

DESCRIPTION
       The  Framed  Access  Command Environment Interface (FACE) presents your
       files and file folders on the screen through  a  system  of  menus  and
       forms if you are properly set up as a FACE user.

       filename  must  follow  the  naming  convention  Menu.xxx  for  a menu,
       Form.xxx for a form, and Text.xxx for a text file,  where  xxx  is  any
       string  that  conforms to the UNIX  system file naming conventions. The
       Form and Menu Language Interpreter (FMLI) descriptor lifetime  will  be
       ignored  for all frames opened by argument to face. These frames have a
       lifetime of immortal by default. If filename is not  specified  on  the
       command  line,  the   FACE Menu will be opened along with those objects
       specified by the
        LOGINWIN environment variables.  These  variables  are  found  in  the
       user's .environ file.
