NAME

texshow - ConTeXt command and parameter reference

 

SYNOPSIS

texshow [ OPTION ] [ COMMAND ] [ LANGUAGE ]

 

DESCRIPTION

texshow uses perl(1) and PerlTk (see Tk(3pm)) to show a overview of the commands and parameters of those. In the Tk window you can search for a command and by switching the interface, you can see the equivalent in another interface language.

COMMAND is a ConTeXt command to search for in the database. Note that Plain TeX commands are not (yet) in this database although they can be used in ConTeXt source files.

LANGUAGE can be one of cz (Czech), de (German), en (US-English) or nl (Dutch). The default language is Dutch.

You can also set the interface language with the --interface switch.
