uil - The user interface language compiler
uil [ options ] file
The uil command invokes the
UIL compiler. The User Interface Language (
UIL) is a specification language for describing
the initial state of a user interface for a Motif application. The
specification describes the objects (menus, dialog boxes, labels, push
buttons, and so on) used in the interface and specifies the routines
to be called when the interface changes state as a result of user
Specifies the file to be compiled
through the UIL compiler.
Specifies one or more of the following options:
This option causes the compiler to look for include files
in the directory specified if the include files have not been
found in the paths that already were searched.
Specify this option followed by a pathname, with no intervening
Machine code is listed. This directs the compiler to place in the
listing file a description of the
records that it added to the User Interface Database (UID). This helps you isolate
errors. The default is no machine code.
- -o file
Directs the compiler to produce a UID.
By default, UIL creates a UID with the name
The file specifies the filename for the UID.
No UID is produced if the compiler issues any diagnostics
categorized as error or severe.
Directs the compiler to set the locale before compiling any files.
The locale is set in an implementation-dependent manner.
On ANSI C-based systems, the locale is usually set by calling
If this option is not specified, the compiler does not set the
- -v file
Directs the compiler to generate a listing.
The file specifies the filename for the listing.
If the - v option is not present,
no listing is generated by the compiler.
The default is no listing.
Specifies that the
compiler suppress all warning and informational messages.
If this option is not present, all messages are
regardless of the severity.
- -wmd file
Specifies a binary widget meta-language description file to
be used in place of the default WML description.
