getmemwindow - extracts window ids of user processes from
getmemwindow is the command used to extract window ids of user
processes from the /etc/services.window file. User applications are
encouraged to place a unique string defining an application and its
associated window id in the /etc/services.window file and then extract
that window id using the getmemwindow command.
This allows for changing the application window id in one central
location, rather than changing scripts with hard-coded values, in the
event of a memory window collision between two applications.
# Extract the window id for "HP" from the /etc/services.window file
# and start the program "HP_startup_script" with arguments arg1 and
setmemwindow -i $WinId HP_startup_script arg1 arg2
