DESCRIPTION

       wossname is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular
       Biology Open Software Suite”). It is part of the "Documentation"
       command group(s).

OPTIONS

   Input section
       -search string
           Enter a word or words here and a case-independent search for it
           will be made in the one-line documentation, group names and
           keywords of all of the EMBOSS programs. If no keyword is specified,
           all programs will be listed.

   Additional section
       -explode boolean
           The groups that EMBOSS applications belong to have two forms,
           exploded and not exploded. The exploded group names are more
           numerous and often vaguely phrased than the non-exploded ones. The
           exploded names are formed from definitions of the group names that
           start like NAME1:NAME2 and which are then expanded into many
           combinations of the names as: 'NAME1', 'NAME2', 'NAME1 NAME2',
           NAME2 NAME1'. The non-expanded names are simply like: 'NAME1
           NAME2'. Default value: N

       -allmatch boolean
           By default, all words in the search string must match. This option
           searches for a match to any word in a list of possibilities Default
           value: Y

       -showkeywords boolean
           Default value: N

   Advanced section
       -emboss boolean
           If you use this option then EMBOSS program documentation will be
           searched. If this option is set to be false, then only the EMBASSY
           programs will be searched (if the -embassy option is true). EMBASSY
           programs are not strictly part of EMBOSS, but use the same code
           libraries and share the same look and feel, but are generally
           developed by people who wish the programs to be outside of the GNU
           Public Licence scheme Default value: Y

       -embassy boolean
           If you use this option then EMBASSY program documentation will be
           searched. If this option is set to be false, then only the EMBOSS
           programs will be searched (if the -emboss option is true). EMBASSY
           programs are not strictly part of EMBOSS, but use the same code
           libraries and share the same look and feel, but are generally
           developed by people who wish the programs to be outside of the GNU
           Public Licence scheme Default value: Y

       -showembassy string
           If you use this option then this EMBASSY package program
           documentation will be searched. EMBASSY programs are not strictly
           part of EMBOSS, but use the same code libraries and share the same
           look and feel, but are generally developed by people who wish the
           programs to be outside of the GNU Public Licence scheme

       -colon boolean
           The groups that EMBOSS applications belong to up to two levels, for
           example the primary group 'ALIGNMENT' has several sub-groups, or
           second-level groups, e.g.: CONSENSUS, DIFFERENCES, DOT PLOTS,
           GLOBAL, LOCAL, MULTIPLE. To aid programs that parse the output of
           wossname that require the names of these subgroups, a colon ':'
           will be placed between the first and second level of the group name
           if this option is true. Note: This does not apply if the group
           names have been exploded with the 'explode' option. Default value:
           N

       -gui boolean
           This option is intended to help those who are designing Graphical
           User Interfaces to the EMBOSS applications. Some EMBOSS programs
           are inappropriate for running in a GUI, these include other menu
           programs and interactive editors. This option allows you to only
           report those programs that can be run from a GUI Default value: N

   Output section
       -outfile outfile
           Default value: stdout

   Html section
       -html toggle
           If you are sending the output to a file, this will format it for
           displaying as a table in a WWW document. Default value: N

       -groups boolean
           If you use this option, then only the group names will be output to
           the file Default value: N

       -alphabetic boolean
           If you use this option, then you will get a single list of the
           program names and descriptions instead of the programs being listed
           in their functional groups. Default value: N
