NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxconsole, xconsole - monitor system console messages with

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

       Since dxconsole is an X client,  it  will  terminate  upon
       receiving  a fatal error from the X server. This may occur
       if the swap space is low and the X Server is not  able  to
       process a request from dxconsole.

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 dxconsole and xconsole.
  In the notation below, indentation indicates  hierarchical
 structure.  The widget class name is given first,
       followed by the widget instance name.
