TOOLPLACES(1) General Commands Manual TOOLPLACES(1)
toolplaces - display current SunView window locations, sizes, and other
toolplaces [ -o|O|u ] [ -help ]
This command is available with the software installation option. Refer
to for information on how to install optional software.
toolplaces generates position, size, label, and program attributes for
the windows running on a SunView screen at the time of execution.
(toolplaces does not work when SunView is not running.)
Many people redirect standard output from toolplaces to the .sunview
file, so as to reuse the current window system attributes each time
they execute sunview(1).
For each window on the screen at execution time, toolplaces shows:
the tool name
the "open" window position
the size of the window in pixels
the "closed," or icon, window position
an indicator of whether the window is open or closed
the label at the top of the window
the name of the program running in the window, if a
program is running there
any flags or options to a program running in the window
toolplaces describes each window on one output line, as long as neces-
sary, using the current sunview format.
Current sunview format consists of window tool descriptions, one per
line, as in this example (the \ indicates that the current line contin-
ues on the next line):
