GNUmed is a solution for keeping safe and medically sound electronic records on a
patient's health. It primarily focuses on GP offices. It is released under the GPL.

GNUmed is written in Python with wxPython/wxWindows. Data is stored in a PostgreSQL
database. Multiple clients can work with the same database at the same time.


Be extra quiet and show only _real_ errors in the log.

Pre-set the [debug mode] checkbox in the login dialog which controls increased
verbosity in the log file.

Useful for, well, debugging :-) Slower, too.

Pre-set the [enable remote control] checkbox in the login dialog to enable the XML-

Set this to change the name of the language file to be loaded. Note, this does not

Use configuration file FILE instead of searching for it in standard locations.

Explicitly set the language to use in gettext translation. The very same effect can
be achieved by setting the environment variable $LANG from a launcher script.

Explicitly set the user interface type. Omitting this argument will default the
interface to wxPython.

Valid values are:

wxp: wxPython Python client (default)

web: CherryPy web client

Continue loading the client even if the database schema version and the client
software version cannot be verified to be compatible.

Skip checking for client updates. This is useful during development or when the
update check URL is unavailable.

At startup adjust the PYTHONPATH such that the GNUmed client is run from a local
copy of the source tree rather than from a proper system-wide installation.

--version, -V
Show version information about the GNUmed client and the database it needs.

--help, -h, or -?
Well, show this help.


See gettext(1) for how the various locale related environment variables work.
