       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	 Data-
			   base	 (UID).	This helps you isolate errors. The de-
			   fault 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 de-

       X(1) and	Uil(3).
