 NAME
      getmemwindow - extracts window ids of user processes from
      /etc/services.window

 SYNOPSIS
      getmemwindow string

 DESCRIPTION
      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.

 EXAMPLES
      # Extract the window id for "HP" from the /etc/services.window file
      # and start the program "HP_startup_script" with arguments arg1 and
      # arg2.
      #
      WinId=$(getmemwindow HP)
      setmemwindow -i $WinId HP_startup_script arg1 arg2

 AUTHOR
      getmemwindow was developed by HP.
