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 inter-
face changes state as a result of user interaction.
file Specifies the file to be compiled through the UIL compiler.
options 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 pro-
duced if the compiler issues any diagnostics cate-
gorized as error or severe. UIDs are portable only
across same-size machine architectures.
-s Directs the compiler to set the locale before com-
piling any files. The locale is set in an imple-
mentation-dependent manner. On ANSI C-based sys-
tems, the locale is usually set by calling setlo-
cale(LC_ALL, ""). If this option is not specified,
the compiler does not set the locale.
-v file Directs the compiler to generate a listing. The
file specifies the filename for the listing. If
the -v option is not present, no listing is gener-
ated 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 generated, regardless of
-wmd file Specifies a binary widget meta-language description
file to be used in place of the default WML
X(1) and Uil(3).
