       gRun - X/GTK based application launcher.


       gRun [filename] [-v] [--version] [-h] [--help]


       gRun launches applications in X Windows without the need for an xterm session at all. gRun
       provides three methods of launching applications, entering the command directly  into  the
       text  field, browsing the tree for the application and running an application specified on
       the command line. In all cases gRun exits completely after launching the  application  and
       the  application  is left running as a full child of the X process, as if it were launched
       from a WM menu. If gRun is launched from an xterm or shell, the shell will  be  freed  for
       further  use  after  gRun  exits.  No  more  wasting  an  xterm  for  the  duration of the

       gRun will attempt to complete a command automatically from the history as it is typed  in,
       hopefully  saving  some  time. Pressing the Tab key will try to find an executable file in
       the path that starts with the characters already entered into the entry box.

       gRun also includes a facility for checking if the command is in a  list  of  console  mode
       apps,  eg  telnet.  If  it  finds  the command in the file, gRun launches a xterm with the
       command as the -e parameter.

       gRun now has a facility for associating file extensions with a command, ala Windows. If an
       extension  is  found, the associated application is launched with the command entry as the

              Application name for command line launching from a xterm. The filename  must  exist
              within  either  the default path or have a fully qualified path. Any options passed
              after the filename are passed down to the application if not removed by gtk_init()

              gRun dialog does not close after launching application

              Tooltips are not displayed

              Display the current version number of grun.

       --help Display a short usage guide.

       gRun also recognizes all standard X Windows and GTK options, eg -display and -geometry.


       None currently known.
