openapp - launch applications from the command line
openapp [--find] [--debug] application [arguments...]

from the command line. If --debug is used, or if it is invoked as
debugapp, the application be launched in a debugger
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 --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.
--find print complete path of the executable which would be launched.
--help print above usage description.
Start Ink.app without additional parameters:
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:
openapp does currently not handle library combos.
This variable contains the paths of the domains in which gopen
tries to find applications to open the files with. Entries are
separated by a colon.
