The Motif-based graphical user interface offers a pleasant and easy to use environment for Carafe. Commands and options are set using pop-up menus instead of typing in the command at the Carafe prompt. The Command Line Interface chapter contains more detailed information of what the commands do; this chapter just explains what commands are available. With the use of buttons and option windows, settings for Carafe are displayed and changed in an easy-to-use and understand manner. The sections below describe the options under the main menu bar titles File, Commands, and View. Figure 9.1 shows the main Carafe screen; this is what the user first sees upon loading Carafe.
