NAME

cdoc - invokes CDA document conversion  

SYNOPSIS

cdoc [-s format] [-d format] [-O options_file] [-m message_log] [-o outputfile] inputfile


 

OPTIONS

Specifies the format of inputfile and invokes an appropriate input converter as part of CDA. The DDIF, DTIF, DOTS (for Analysis output only) and Text converter are provided in the DEC CDA Run-Time Services kit. Additional converters can be added by other layered products. Contact your system manager for a complete list of the input formats supported on your system. The default format is DDIF. Specifies the format of outputfile and invokes an appropriate output converter as part of CDA. The DDIF, DTIF, Text, Analysis, and PS converters are provided in the Tru64 UNIX OSFCDABASE subset or the DEC CDA Run-Time Services kit. Additional converters can be added by other layered products. Contact your system manager for a complete list of the output formats supported on your system. The default format is DDIF. Names the file passed to the input and output converters to control specific processing options for each converter. Refer to your documentation set for a description of converter options.

The options file has a default file type of .cda_options. Each line of the options file specifies a format name that can optionally be followed by _input or _output to restrict the option to either an input or output converter. The second word is a valid option preceded by one or more spaces, tabs, or a slash (/) and can contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, dollar signs, and underlines. The case of letters is not significant. If an option requires a value, then spaces, tabs, or an equal sign can separate the option from the value.
You can precede any line by spaces and tabs. To terminate a line, use any character other than those used to specify the format names and options. The syntax and interpretation of the text that follows the format name is specified by the supplier of the front and back end converters for the specified format.
To specify several options for the same input or output format, specify one option on a line. If an invalid option for an input or output format or an invalid value for an option is specified, the option may be ignored or an error message may be returned. Each input or output format that supports processing options specifies any restrictions or special formats required when specifying options.
By default, any messages that occur during processing of the options file are written to standard error. For those input and output formats that support a LOG option, messages can be directed to a log file or to a common message log. Enables enhanced messaging and logs all messages to message_log or, if `-' is specified, to standard error in place of the message_log. If you do not specify this option, only serious errors are reported.
Once you create the common message log, CDA access routine users can manage their front and back end messages by continuing to direct those messages to the common message log. When you create a common message log, error messages may still be sent to individual front and back end logs through the use of the options for those front and back ends. The common message log serves as a convenient tool for integration of messages from the various front and back ends. Specifies the name of the output file. If not specified, cdoc writes to standard output.
 

DESCRIPTION

The cdoc command converts the revisable format file, inputfile, to another revisable format or to a final form file. If inputfile is not specified, cdoc reads from standard input. Unless a destination file is specified with the -o option, the cdoc command writes files to standard output.
