newdoc - New Document Number Allocation Utility
newdoc [ Title [ ShortDescription [ dirfile ] ] ]
newdoc allocates a new document number, based on files present in the
current working directory. Documents may be either simple files or
directories (containing multiple files making up a single
document e.g. a complex Framemaker document).
A document is named according to the convention nn.Title, where nn
is a 2 digit number, and Title is a short title for a document (containing
no white space).
If the arguments are not supplied, they will be prompted for. If
arguments are supplied on the command line, and they are to contain
white space, remember to enclose them in quotes.
newdoc will create a placeholder file and directory (if dir option used).
A summary of the documents present in the directory is maintained in
a file 00.ReadMe.
Title - This parameter, with the white space removed forms the title part
of the filename or directory. Keep this reasonably short.
Short Description - Is used as a short description of the document
as part of the 00.ReadMe file. This parameter is limited to one line.
Document Type - This indicates whether the document is a simple single file
(the file option), or a directory containing multiple files (the dir option).
Only "dir" or "file" are acceptable.
CLIENT Set this to the name to appear in the client field. If unset, this
will default to CiTR.
I am sure someone will find some as soon as it is used.
