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

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

       Specifies  the X Window System server to use for display.  The specifi‐
       cation is in the form hostname:display.	For example:

	      -display 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 horizon‐
	      tal 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  dis‐
	      played.	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 Net‐
	      scape to install a private colormap.   Forces  Netscape  to  use
	      one-bit-deep  display  of images.	 Text and other non-image ele‐
	      ments 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	appli‐
	      cation  itself is not started.  Instructs Netscape to use a spe‐
	      cific X Window System server visual. Server visuals are  differ‐
	      ent  ways that a server can handle the mapping of color informa‐
	      tion (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 Net‐
	      scape to set a specific X Window System resource.	 See the  sam‐
	      ple  file /usr/doc/netscape/ for a list of the avail‐
	      able resources and their meanings.

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

       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 lan‐
       guage.  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.  Net‐
       scape 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 face-to-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	infor‐
       mation and announcements.  Netscape Composer document creation capabil‐
       ities 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 ease.

       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

       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  prefer‐
       ences  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 most-used features of the

       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  documenta‐
       tion and other services on your local Tru64 UNIX system.	 You can spec‐
       ify 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,  pro‐
       vides complete information about setting options and preferences.

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