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 interaction.
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 spaces.
-m 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.
Directs the compiler to produce a UID. By default, UIL creates a
UID with the name a.uid. The file specifies the filename for the
UID. No UID is produced if the compiler issues any diagnostics
categorized as error or severe.
-s 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
setlocale(LC_ALL, " "). If this option is not specified, the com-
piler does not set the locale.
Directs the compiler to generate a listing. The file specifies the
filename for the listing. If the -v option is not present, no list-
ing is generated by the compiler. The default is no listing.
-w Specifies that the compiler suppress all warning and informational
messages. If this option is not present, all messages are gen-
erated, regardless of the severity.
Specifies a binary widget meta-language description file to be used
in place of the default WML description.
