findanicon - find an icon on the system (File QuickFind)
In IRIX 6.3 and later releases, findanicon is no longer a standalone
application. Instead, it has been replaced by the File QuickFind dialog,
which is a child dialog window of the file manager fm. The dialog can be
opened from the toolchest "Find" menu, or from the fm popup menu.
The File QuickFind dialog can also be opened via a Unix shell command if
fm is running on the desktop background (that is, if fm was first
launched with the -b option). To open the File QuickFind dialog from a
Unix shell, type /usr/lib/desktop/telldesktop fetch.
The File QuickFind dialog allows the user to retrieve the icon for a
particular file, or conversely to obtain the fully-qualified filename for
The File QuickFind dialog presents a small window containing a drop
pocket and a text field. If the user drags an icon from the IRIX
Interactive Desktop into the drop pocket, the text field will show the
icon's location on the system with its full path name. If the user types
a name in the text field, the dialog will search for an icon matching
that name in the user's home directory, then, if no matching icon is
found, in the directories specified in the user's path environment
variable. Icons that appear in the drop pocket can be dragged out onto
the Desktop or manipulated in place (ex., double-clicked).
For more information about the entire IRIX Interactive Desktop
environment, see the IID(1) man page.
