NAME

       openapp - launch applications from the command line

SYNOPSIS

       openapp [--find] application [arguments...]

DESCRIPTION

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

       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),
       Local, Network, System. First match wins.

       If  application  is  given  without  extension  (i.e.  Ink  instead  of
       Ink.app),  openapp  searches  for application.app , application.debug ,
       application.profile (in that order).

       If --find is used as first argument, openapp prints out the  full  path
       of the application executable which would be executed, without actually
       executing it as it would normally do.

OPTIONS

       --find print complete path of the executable which would be launched.

       --help print above usage description.

EXAMPLES

       Start Ink.app without additional parameters:

       openapp Ink.app

       Launch Ink.app and pass it the --GNU-Debug argument:

       openapp Ink.app --GNU-Debug=NSTextView

       To determine which executable is launched by openapp, type:

       openapp --find Ink.app

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

BUGS

       openapp does currently not handle library combos.

ENVIRONMENT

       GNUSTEP_PATHLIST
              This  variable  contains the paths of the domains in which gopen

              separated by a colon.

       Example:
              /home/foo/GNUstep:/usr/GNUstep/Local:/usr/GNUstep/Network:/usr/GNUstep/System
