NAME

       uil — The user interface language compiler


SYNOPSIS

       uil [options ]  [file]


DESCRIPTION

       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:

                 -Ipathname
                           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.

                 -o file

                           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
                           the severity.

                 -wmd file Specifies a binary widget meta-language description
                           file  to  be  used  in  place  of  the  default WML
                           description.
