DCOPSTART(1)                General Commands Manual               DCOPSTART(1)



NAME
       dcopstart -- Start a KDE service and return its DCOP reference

SYNOPSIS
       dcopstart service [...]

DESCRIPTION
       dcopstart  starts a KDE service (i.e. an application that is registered
       in the KDE system of .desktop files)  and  returns  its  reference  for
       later  use in shell scripts. If the service is not scriptable via DCOP,
       dcopstart returns nothing, but starts the service.

OPTIONS
       --help    Show usage information.

EXAMPLES
       Get the DCOP reference for a newly started konqueror instance

              KONQ_ID=$(dcopstart konqueror http://www.kde.org)
