NAME

dxconsole, xconsole - monitor system console messages with X  

SYNOPSIS

dxconsole | xconsole [-toolkitoption...] [-file file-name] [-notify] [-stripNonprint] [-daemon] [-verbose] [-exitOnFail] [-motif] [-stdin] [-maxSize n] [-buttons]


 

OPTIONS

The dxconsole and xconsole programs accept all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with the additional options listed below: To monitor some other device, use this option to specify the device name. This does not work on regular files as they are always ready to be read from. When new data are received from the console and the notify option is set, the icon name of the application has "*" appended, so that it is evident even when the application is iconified. -notify is the default. This option causes dxconsole or xconsole to place itself in the background, using fork/exit. When set, this option directs dxconsole or xconsole to display an informative message in the first line of the text buffer. When set, this option directs dxconsole or xconsole to exit when it is unable to redirect the console output. When set, this option causes the Motif interface to be presented. (This option is always set in dxconsole.) This option directs xconsole to read from stdin as well as /dev/console (default in dxconsole). This option establishes the maximum amount (in characters) to be displayed. The default is 32768. This option governs whether clear and dismiss buttons appear. Applies only to the Motif interface and is set by default.
 

DESCRIPTION

The dxconsole and xconsole programs display messages which are usually sent to /dev/console.

By default, xconsole presents the Athena interface and dxconsole presents the Motif interface.
