     XCONSOLE(1)	X Version 11 (Release 6.4)	   XCONSOLE(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xconsole - monitor system console messages with X

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xconsole[-toolkitoption ...] [-file file-name] [-notify] [-
	  stripNonprint] [-daemon] [-verbose] [-exitOnFail]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The xconsole program displays	messages which are usually
	  sent to /dev/console.

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Xconsole accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line
	  options along	with the additional options listed below:

	  -file	file-name
		  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

	  -notify -nonotify
		  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.

	  -daemon This option causes xconsole to place itself in the
		  background, using fork/exit.

		  When set, this option	directs	xconsole to display an
		  informative message in the first line	of the text

		  When set, this option	directs	xconsole to exit when
		  it is	unable to redirect the console output.

     X DEFAULTS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This program uses the	Athena Text widget, look in the	Athena
	  Widget Set documentation for controlling it.

     WIDGETS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the
	  hierarchy of the widgets which compose xconsole.  In the
	  notation below, indentation indicates	hierarchical
	  structure.  The widget class name is given first, followed
	  by the widget	instance name.
