NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     findanicon	- find an icon on the system (File QuickFind)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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  Instead, it has been	replaced by the	File QuickFind dialog,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
     an	icon.

     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.
