TK(1)                       General Commands Manual                      TK(1)



NAME
       tk - paginator for the Tektronix 4014

SYNOPSIS
       tk [ -t ] [ -N ] [ -pL ] [ file ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  output  of  tk  is  intended  for  a  Tektronix 4014 terminal.  Tk
       arranges for 66 lines to fit on the screen, divides the screen  into  N
       columns,  and  contributes  an eight space page offset in the (default)
       single-column case.  Tabs, spaces, and  backspaces  are  collected  and
       plotted  when  necessary.   Teletype  Model  37  half- and reverse-line
       sequences are interpreted and plotted.  At the  end  of  each  page  tk
       waits for a newline (empty line) from the keyboard before continuing on
       to the next page.  In this wait state, the command !command  will  send
       the command to the shell.

       The command line options are:

       -t     Don't wait between pages; for directing output into a file.

       -N     Divide the screen into N columns and wait after the last column.

       -pL    Set page length to L lines.
