NAME
       rxque - data queue server

SYNOPSIS
       rxque [ -csh | filename ]

DESCRIPTION
       rxque  is  a daemon which serves	a data queue, normally used by rexx(1)
       which starts it automatically, although it can be started manually.  It
       runs  in	 the  background  and accepts requests from rxstack(1) or from
       Rexx programs until terminated with signal 15.

USAGE
       The server communicates with clients via	a Unix-domain  socket.	 If  a
       filename	 parameter is given, rxque uses	this as	the name of the	socket
       and prints the process id of the	server to its standard	output.	  This
       should be saved and used	to terminate the server	with signal 15 when it
       is no longer required.  If no filename  parameter  is  supplied,	 rxque
       generates  a  filename of its own and outputs both the filename and the
       process id to its standard output in the	form of	settings for the envi-
       ronment	variables  RXSTACK and RXSTACKPROC, respectively.  The default
       format is two `NAME=value' pairs,  suitable  for	 interpretation	 by  a
       Bourne shell.  If the -csh flag is supplied then	the format will	be two
       `setenv'	commands suitable for interpretation by	a C-shell.  Writing  a
       command such as:

       eval `rxque -csh`

       will thus set the environment variables.

       The  variable  RXSTACK containing the socket file name must be exported
       to the environment in order for clients to be able to use the stack.

OPTIONS
       -csh   Use the `setenv' format of output.

       filename
	      Use the filename as the name of the socket and just  output  the
	      process id of the	server.

ENVIRONMENT
       RXSTACK
	      The name of the socket used for communication with the server.

       RXSTACKPROC
	      The process id of	the server.
