The file is divided into eight sections: X 1) A summary of all the main features which are accessed via command line switches and parameters, along with the single key press commands that can be given to an X Window or PC graphics screen to change the display in various ways (assuming graphics are compiled in) is listed. X 2) The list of command switches and keys is repeated, but after each option is given a full description of the details of the feature. X 3) Details of default settings, in compile time options, and in the default configuration file, are described, along with using Astrolog files in general. X 4) Descriptions of things that appear in Astrolog text displays are described. This consists of describing how to enter chart information into the program, and how to interpret what is seen in the standard main display. X 5) Next is a description of the different graphic chart displays and how they are organized, and the X Windows features in general. (Looking for a quick display to prove Astrolog was worth downloading and/or compiling? With graphics try: "astrolog -Xn -XG"!) X 6) Then are discussed the program's graphics features for PC's, how to use them, the ways they are different from X Windows, and the best way to use them if running the DOS version under Microsoft Windows. X 7) Then is discussed Astrolog for Windows, and a description of the easy to use menu and dialog interface it offers. X 8) Finally is a section on compiling Astrolog if you have the source code files, as opposed to an executable ready to run, as well as how to compile and run Astrolog on the Macintosh.

X -m0: Like -m but display midpoint summary too. X -ma: Like -m but show aspects from midpoints to planets as well. X -Z: Display planet locations with respect to the local horizon. X -Z0: Like -Z but express coordinates relative to polar center. X -Zd: Search day for object local rising and setting times. X -S: Display x,y,z coordinate positions of planets in space. X -l: Display Gauquelin sectors for each planet in chart. X -l0: Like -l but approximate sectors using Placidus cusps. X -j: Display astrological influences of each object in chart. X -j0: Like -j but include influences of each zodiac sign as well. X -L []: Display astro-graph locations of planetary angles. X -L0 [..]: Like -L but display list of latitude crossings too.
