1. STARTING ZIGZAG
ZigZag looks for its data file, by default, at zigzag.data in the
If you want to use a different data file, specify it on the
command line like this:
2. MOVING AROUND
ZigZag is strang - you have TWO cursors! One for each window.
The left window is the "action" window - whatever the left cursor
points to is an action that can be taken. To move the cursor in
the left window, use the s, f, e, c keys. Note that when you
"move" the cursor it stays in the middle of the window and the
rest of the cells move around it! Nifty, hey!
The right window is the "data" window - it points to the data that
the action will act on. To move the cursor in the right window,
either use the arrow keys, or the j, l, i, " keys. Same deal with
the window moving.
3. EDITING A CELL
The left window is the "action" window. Find the cell labeled
and position the left cursor on it. Note what's under the right
cursor and press <ENTER> to "execute" the action. You're now
editing (left cursor tells you what action) the contents of the
right-cursor's cell (right cursor tells you what data).
Exit the editor without doing anything at this point and you'll be
back in ZigZag.
