NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       netscape - Invokes Netscape (R) Communicator for the World
       Wide Web

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       netscape [options] [{ file | URL } ...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies the X Window System server to use  for  display.
       The  specification  is  in the form hostname:display.  For

              -display carnifex.spqr.com:0 Specifies the size and
              location  of  the  netscape  window.  Values are in
              pixels.  The W and H values determine the width and
              height,  respectively,  of the window.  The X and Y
              values, if present, determine the window's horizontal
  and vertical positions, respectively.  A positive
 value for X or Y specifies displacement of the
              window  from the left or top edge of the display. A
              negative  value  specifies  displacement  from  the
              right or bottom edge.  Causes Netscape to display a
              help message  listing  the  command's  options  and
              their meanings.  The Netscape application itself is
              not started.  Causes Netscape to start up minimized
              instead  of  starting  with  its  window displayed.
              Specifies the ID of a window to which  remote  commands
  are  to be sent. (See the description of the
              -remote option.)  If unspecified, the  first window
              found  is  used.   Instructs  Netscape to install a
              private colormap.  Forces Netscape to use  one-bitdeep
  display  of images.  Text and other non-image
              elements can still be in  color.   When  not  using
              -install,  sets  the  maximum  number  of colors to
              allocate for images to N.   Instructs  Netscape  to
              use  the  default colormap.  Instructs Netscape not
              to auto-raise the window to which subsequent remote
              commands  are  issued  with  the  -remote  command.
              Instructs Netscape  to  auto-raise  the  window  to
              which  subsequent  remote  commands are issued with
              the -remote command.  The default condition  is  to
              raise   the   target  window  (-raise).   Instructs
              Netscape to execute a command in a Netscape process
              that  is  already running.  See the online Netscape
              handbook for a  list  of  valid  commands.   Causes
              Netscape to show its version number and build date.
              The Netscape application  itself  is  not  started.
              Instructs  Netscape to use a specific X Window System
 server visual.  Server  visuals  are  different
              ways  that a server can handle the mapping of color
              information (TrueColor, GrayScale, PseudoColor, and
              so  forth).  For  information  about  the available
              visuals for a particular server, use  the  xdpyinfo
              command.   The  visual IDs reported by xdpyinfo can
              be used  as  parameters  for  the  -visual  option.
              Causes  Netscape  to set a specific X Window System
              resource.       See      the      sample       file
              /usr/doc/netscape/Netscape.ad  for  a  list  of the
              available resources and their meanings.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies a local file to be viewed.  Specifies a  Uniform
       Resource Locator (URL) address to be viewed.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  netscape command invokes the Netscape browser for the
       World Wide Web.  Netscape enables you  to  view  documents
       (called  "pages"  or "Web pages") that have been formatted
       with the HTML hypertext markup  language.   You  can  also
       access  FTP  directories, Gopher archives, and other types
       of objects.

       Netscape (R) Communicator includes the following  segments
       with   the  capabilities  described.   Netscape  Navigator
       enables you to access the wealth of information  and  network
 applications on corporate intranets and the Internet.
       You can  easily  access  information  from  a  variety  of
       sources,  from  the  latest  Web sites to legacy corporate
       databases.  Netscape Messenger enables you to create  rich
       HTML  email  with  embedded  images. It also allows you to
       encrypt and decrypt your messages for privacy, use filters
       to  automatically  organize  your  incoming  messages into
       folders, and quickly look up  email  addresses.   Netscape
       Collabra  provides  discussion forums that make it easy to
       share information and create a knowledge base that  people
       can  access at any time. You can reduce the need for faceto-face
 meetings and save time  by  exchanging  ideas  and
       information  through  discussion  groups. You can also cut
       down on mass email by using Netscape Collabra to  disseminate
 company information and announcements.  Netscape Composer
 document creation capabilities provide a simple  yet
       powerful  solution for editing and publishing online documents.
   What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get  (WYSIWYG)   editing
       allows users to create dynamic online documents easily and
       publish them to local file systems and remote servers with

       Through the use of helper applications, you can view files
       for which Netscape itself does not provide support.  Document
 types and their corresponding helper applications are
       specified in your $HOME/.mailcap file.

       The netscape window contains a menu bar  with  menu  items
       that  allow you to open, print, or save pages, to view the
       source of HTML pages, to move between pages, to maintain a
       list  of  "bookmarks," to set preferences and options, and
       to perform other useful tasks.  Optionally  (by  default),
       Netscape also displays a button bar at the top of its window;
 the buttons provide more direct access to  the  mostused
 features of the menus.

       If  you  invoke  Netscape  with no input file or URL arguments,
 the program defaults to display its "home page." As
       supplied  by  HP, the home page is the Tru64 UNIX InfoCenter,
 from which you have access to documentation and other
       services on your local Tru64 UNIX system.  You can specify
       a different home page using the Preferences  choice  under
       Netscape's Options menu.

       Although  you  can specify X Window System resources using
       the -xrm resource-spec option, the most effective  way  to
       customize   Netscape  is  to set the options controlled by
       the program's Options menu.  The online Netscape handbook,
       accessible  from  Netscape's  Help menu, provides complete
       information about setting options and preferences.

       Extensive online assistance is accessible from  Netscape's
       Help menu.
