                   [Reason:  crtype]
                   [Function:  function function....]
                   [keyword: value ]
                   File: file1 ver1 ver2 ver3 ...
                   File: file2 ver1 ver2 ...
                      .
                      .
                   Description:
                   description lines
                      .
                      .

    PARAMETERS
      CR   The name of a Change Request to be created.

      "title"
           The CR title. One line of text may be used for the title
           specification.

      "description"
           Concatenate the description into CR.

    OPTIONS
      -ffile[:ver],file1:[ver1],..
           The specified files will be registered in the CR. If no :ver is
           specified then the latest version is taken.
           If the -nv option is used together with -f only the file name is
           registered.

      -sstate
           Defines the status of the edited CR. The default status is Init.
           If the state is set to Term, the CR is also terminated after CR
           is created.

      -wAssignTo
           Assigns the CR to a person, which normally should handle the CR.
           This person will be the owner of the CR. The default is the one
           that creates the CR. After the CR is created the CR can be
           assigned to another person the command crassign.

      -mMailTo
           Mails the contents of the created CR to the specified e-mail
           address.

      -uMailSubject
           When a CR is mailed MailSubject is used as subject part. If -u is
           not specified the name of the CR is used as subject.

      -nv  Register only the file name without any file version. This makes
           it possible to regeister a change before actually doing the
           change.

           Low Medium High

           quotation characters.

      -FFunction,..
           Define functions that are related to the CR. If the entered text
           includes several words it must be enclosed in quotation
           characters.

      -kkey:value,...
           Define any key and its value. Several keys can be specified with
           comma (',') between the different key:value pair. Each time a new
           keyword-line will be placed in the CR.  If the entered value
