openapp(1)		     GNUstep System Manual		    openapp(1)

NAME
       openapp - launch	applications from the command line

SYNOPSIS
       openapp	[--find] [--debug [--gdb= debuger]] [ --library-combo=library-
       combo ] application [arguments...]

DESCRIPTION
       The openapp command allows you to launch	graphical GNUstep applications
       from the	command	line.

       application is the complete or relative name of the application program
       with or without the .app	extension, like	Ink.app.

       arguments are the arguments passed to the application.

       openapp first checks whether the	application is in the current  working
       directory.   If	not  then  searches  the GNUstep domains' Applications
       folders in the following	order: User (i.e. ~/GNUstep/Applications), Lo-
       cal, Network, System. First match wins.

OPTIONS
       --find application
	      will print out the full path of the application executable which
	      would be executed, without actually executing it.	It  will  also
	      list all paths that are attempted.

       --debug application
	      starts the application in	the debugger. By default gdb, but this
	      can be changed with the --gdb= argument or through the GDB shell
	      variable.

       --library-combo=library-combo
	      Starts the application with the specified	library	combo. This is
	      a	rarely used option in a	non-flattened setup. See the  library-
	      combo(7)	man-page  for more information about the different li-
	      brary combinations.

       --help print above usage	description.

EXAMPLES
       Start Ink.app without additional	parameters:

       openapp Ink.app

       Launch Ink.app and pass it the --debug argument:

       openapp --debug Ink.app

       To determine which executable is	launched by openapp, type:

       openapp --find Ink.app

       The  output  of	the   above   command	might	be   something	 like:
       /usr/GNUstep/Local/Applications/Ink.app/Ink

ENVIRONMENT
       GNUSTEP_CONFIG_FILE
	      is  used to determine where the GNUstep.sh configuration file is
	      located. If the variable is not set openapp tries	to  locate  it
	      in  the  folder  where openapp was started, then in the user do-
	      main, and	as a last resort in the	system domain (or actually the
	      place you	configured (--with-config-file=) during	building).

       GDB    Sets the debugger	to use when --debug is used.
