Arguments (cont)
Once the terminal type is established, the remaining arg-
uments are interpreted thus: if the argument begins with a
"-", the rest of it is interpreted as though it appeared after
the "o" in an option command. For example, an argument of
"-w10" acts as a command "ow10". On the other hand, if the
argument does not begin with "-", it is interpreted as a file
name (path- name). The named file is read into the edit
buffer, and its name becomes the remembered file name. If
more than one file is named, the edit buffer will contain the
contents of all the files. If an error is encountered while
interpreting arguments (file not found, illegal option), the
remainder will be ignored.
For invoking command syntax, type "hargs".
