mifform



NAME

      mifform - Script to format new mif format files either  with  template
      or existing frm-file


DESCRIPTION

      mifform is used when you  want  a  new  unformatted  mif  format  file
      formatted.   You  can either use an existing formatted FrameMaker file
      to format your new unformatted mif format  file  or  you  can  use  an
      existing  predefined  template  to  do  the  same  thing.  If the file
      <outfilename>  exists,   then   this   file   will   be   renamed   as
      <outfilename>.old  (and  to  <outfilename>.older)  and  then  used  as
      template unless otherwise defined in the command given.



SYNOPSIS

      mifform [-t <templatefilename>] <infilename> <outfilename>



OPTIONS

       -t           templatefilename is the filename of a preferred
                    preformatted FrameMaker document or an other template
                    standard then the one mifform uses as default.
                    The default template is UsersManual under
                    /usr/frame/fminit/ukenglish/Maker/Templates/
                    ABBtemplates4.0-0. If the environment variable
                    MIFFORM_TEMPL is set to point to some FrameMaker
                    template, then this filename will be the default
                    template.



PARAMETERS

       infilename       The name of the required filename to format


       outfilename      The name of the required formatted filename
                        to output



EXTERNAL INFLUENCES

      You may define an  environment  variable  called  MIFFORM_TEMPL.  This
      variable should point to a template. If it is empty or does not exist,
      then the default variable mention above will be used.
