+.TH policyeditor 1 "10 Mar 2014"
+policyeditor - view and modify security policy settings for
+.B javaws
+and the browser plugin
+.B policyeditor
+.B policyeditor [-file]
+.B policyeditor
+is a command line program to view and edit applet security policy settings
+used by the icedtea-web implementation of
+.B javaws
+and the browser plugin. It is intended as a simpler, easier to use, and more
+accessible alternative to the standard JDK Policy Tool. Administrators and
+power users who need fine grained control over policy files should probably
+use Policy Tool instead of PolicyEditor.
+If executed without any arguments, no file is opened, and saving the file will
+result in a prompt on where to save it. Otherwise, if a file path is given as
+a command line argument, then that file path will be opened and parsed as a
+policy file.
+Specifies a policy file path to open. If this is not given as an argument, the
+first argument given is interpreted as a file path to open anyway. This switch
+exists mostly for compatibility with Policy Tool.
+Show the GUI editor
+policyeditor -file $HOME/.config/icedtea-web/security/java.policy
+Opens the default user-level policy file location
+$HOME/.config/icedtea-web/security/java.policy the default user-level policy file location
+There aren't any known bugs. If you come across one, please file it at
