NAME

       start_webtool - WebTool Start Script

DESCRIPTION

       The  start_webtool script starts WebTool, a WebTool application and a web browser pointing
       to this application.

EXPORTS

       start_webtool application [ browser ]

              Starts WebTool, the given WebTool Application and a web browser  pointing  to  this
              application.

              If no argument is given, a list of available applications is displayed, e.g.

              >start_webtool
              Starting webtool...
              WebTool is available at http://localhost:8888/
              Or  http://127.0.0.1:8888/

              Usage: start_webtool application [ browser ]

              Available applications are: [orber,appmon,crashdump_viewer,webcover]
              Default browser is 'iexplore' (Internet Explorer) on Windows or else 'firefox'

              To  start  any  of  the listed applications, give the application name as the first
              argument, e.g.

              >start_webtool webcover
              Starting webtool...
              WebTool is available at http://localhost:8888/
              Or  http://127.0.0.1:8888/
              Starting webcover...
              Sending URL to netscape...done

              The WebTool application WebCover is then started and the default browser  is  used.
              The default browser is Internet Explorer on Windows or else Firefox.

              To  use  another  browser, give the browser's start command as the second argument,
              e.g.

              >start_webtool webcover mozilla
              Starting webtool...
              WebTool is available at http://localhost:8888/
              Or  http://127.0.0.1:8888/
              Starting webcover...
              Sending URL to mozilla...done

              If the given browser name is not known to WebTool, WebTool will run it as a command
              with the start URL as the only argument, e.g.

              >start_webtool webcover mybrowser
              Starting webtool...
              WebTool is available at http://localhost:8888/
              Or  http://127.0.0.1:8888/
              Starting webcover...
              Starting mybrowser...

              Here the command "mybrowser http://localhost:8888/webcover" is executed.
