The overall appearance of a paper-based output format can be controlled by initialising the OPT_LOOK variable on the top line of a document. For example:
Alternatively, sdf's -k option can be used. For example:
sdf -2ps -kinfomap mydoc
The -k option overrides the init macro setting.
Note: At this time (January 98), multiple looks are currently only supported for paper documentation generated via FrameMaker. Multiple look support will hopefully be added to other SDF output drivers during 1998.
The available looks include:
- simple - the default look, useful for general documentation
- fancy - a look suitable for user documentation
- infomap - a look based on Information Mapping
- overhead - a look suitable for overhead transparencies.
It is relatively simple to create new looks by inheriting details from an existing one.
Refer to the SDF Guru Guide for details.
