NAME
gwyddion SPM data visualization and analysis

SYNOPSIS
gwyddion [OPTION...] [FILE...]

DESCRIPTION
Gwyddion is a graphical SPM (Scanning Probe Microscope) data visualization and analysis program, using Gtk+.

OPTIONS
The program accepts all standard Gtk+, Gdk, and GtkGLExt options like display or sync. Please see documentation of these packages for description of
toolkit options.

The behaviour of the remote control options remote * is undefined when more than one instance of Gwyddion is running on the display. They can choose an
arbitrary instance to communicate to.

Gwyddion options:

help
Prints a brief help and terminates.

version
Prints version information and terminates.

no splash
Disables splash screen on program startup.

remote new
Opens files given on the command line in an already running instance of Gwyddion on the display. Runs a new instance if none is running.

This is probably the most useful remote control option. File type associations are usually installed to run Gwyddion with this option.

remote existing
Opens files given on the command line in an already running instance of Gwyddion on the display. Fails if none is running.

This is useful if you want to handle the case of Gwyddion not running differently than by starting it.

remote query
Succeeds if an instance of Gwyddion is already running on the display and prints its instance identifier. Fails if none is running.

The instance identifier depends on the remote control backend in use. In some cases it is useful as a global window identifier, in some it is not. With
libXmu this option prints the X11 Window, on Win32 HWND is printed, while with LibUnique the startup id is printed.

check
Instead of running the user interface and opening FILEs, it loads the files, performs a sanity check on them (printing errors to standard error output)
and terminates.

log to file
Redirect messages from GLib, Gtk+, Gwyddion, etc. to ~/.gwyddion/gwyddion.log or file given in GWYDDION_LOGFILE environment variable. Note messages are
always redirected to a file on Win32 so, this option has not effect on Win32.

debug objects
Prints list of objects created during run time, with creation and desctruction times or reference counts on program exit. Useful only for developers.

startup time
Prints wall clock time taken by various startup (and shutdown) tasks. Useful only for developers and people going to complain about too slow startup.

ENVIRONMENT
On Linux/Unix, following environment variables can be used to override compiled in installation paths (MS Windows version always looks to directories
relative to path where it was installed). Note they are intended to override system installation paths therefore they are not path lists, they can contain
only a single path.

GWYDDION_DATADIR
Base data directory where resources (color gradients, OpenGL materials, ...) were installed. Gwyddion looks into its gwyddion subdirectory for resources.

When it is unset, it defaults to compiled in value of ${datadir} which is usually /usr/local/share.

GWYDDION_LIBDIR
Base library directory where modules were installed. Gwyddion looks into its gwyddion/modules subdirectory for modules.

When it is unset, it defaults to compiled in value of ${libdir} which is usually /usr/local/lib or /usr/local/lib64.

GWYDDION_LIBEXECDIR
Base lib exec directory where plug ins were installed. Gwyddion looks into its gwyddion/plugins subdirectory for plug ins.

When it is unset, it defaults to compiled in value of ${libexecdir} which is usually /usr/local/libexec.

GWYDDION_LOCALEDIR
Locale data directory where message catalogs (translations) were installed.

When it is unset, it defaults to compiled in value of ${datadir}/locale which is usually /usr/local/share/locale.

Other variables that influence Gwyddion run time behaviour include GLib+ variables[1] and Gtk+ variables[2] and some Gwyddion specific variables:

GWYDDION_LOGFILE
Name of file to redirect log messages to. On MS Windows, messages are always sent to a file as working with the terminal is cumbersome there. The default
log file location, gwyddion.log in user´s Documents and Settings, can be overriden with GWYDDION_LOGFILE. On Unix, messages go to the terminal by default
and this environment variable has effect only if log to file is given.

FILES
~/.gwyddion/settings
Saved user settings and tool states. Do not edit while Gwyddion is running, it will overwrite it at exit.

~/.gwyddion/glmaterials, ~/.gwyddion/gradients, ...
User directories with various resources (OpenGL materials, color gradients, ...).

$GWYDDION_DATADIR/gwyddion/glmaterials, $GWYDDION_DATADIR/gwyddion/gradients ...
The same for system wide resources.

~/.gwyddion/pixmaps
Directory to place user icons to. This is mainly useful for installation of modules to home.

$GWYDDION_DATADIR/gwyddion/pixmaps,
The same for system wide icons.

~/.gwyddion/modules
Directory to place user modules to. They should be placed into file, graph, process, layer, and tools subdirectories according to their kind, though this
is more a convention than anything else.

$GWYDDION_LIBDIR/gwyddion/modules,
The same for system wide modules.

~/.gwyddion/plugins
Directory to place user plug ins to. They should be placed into file and process subdirectories according to their kind.

$GWYDDION_LIBEXECDIR/gwyddion/plugins,
The same for system wide plug ins.

~/.gwyddion/pygwy
Directory to place user python modules or scripts to.
