SYNOPSIS

paicc [ -h -c -mui -t -csae]

DESCRIPTION

This command turns the static output from one or more Unix commands into a dynamic, pageable, real-time display. You specify the command(s) and the delay period between screen refreshes and Paint Changed Characters does the rest, including optimizations to minimize cursor movement and the number of transmitted characters. (Patterned after the CYBIL version for NOS/VE.)

The environment variable SHELL determines which shell will execute the command(s). If it is not defined /bin/sh is assumed.

The environment variable D_PAICC_C can be defined to change the default command "ps -el".

Example:

paicc # execute ps -el every second,
# (or the default command)

paicc -c "hostname>o;ps -ef>>o;cat o" -mui 3000
# execute ps -ef every 3 seconds
# with hostname on first line

-title, t: boolean = D_PAICC_T, TRUE

don’t like the default value, define the environment
variable D_PAICC_CSAE=NO.
