NAME

       openapp - launch applications from the command line

SYNOPSIS

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

       debugapp [--find] application [arguments...]

DESCRIPTION

       The  openapp  command  allows you launch graphical GNUstep applications
       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.

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.
