       uil — The user interface language compiler


       uil [options ]  [file]


       The  uil  command invokes the UIL compiler. The User Interface Language
       (UIL) is a specification language for describing the initial state of a
       user interface for a Motif application. The specification describes the
       objects (menus, dialog boxes, labels, push buttons, and so on) used  in
       the  interface  and  specifies  the  routines  to  be  called  when the
       interface changes state as a result of user interaction.

       file      Specifies the file to be compiled through the UIL compiler.

       options   Specifies one or more of the following options:

                           This option causes the compiler to look for include
                           files  in  the  directory  specified if the include
                           files have not been found in the paths that already
                           were  searched.   Specify this option followed by a
                           pathname, with no intervening spaces.

                 -m        Machine code is listed. This directs  the  compiler
                           to  place  in the listing file a description of the
                           records  that  it  added  to  the  User   Interface
                           Database  (UID). This helps you isolate errors. The
                           default is no machine code.

                 -o file

                           Directs the compiler to produce a UID.  By default,
                           UIL  creates  a  UID with the name a.uid.  The file
                           specifies the filename for  the  UID.   No  UID  is
                           produced  if  the  compiler  issues any diagnostics
                           categorized as error or severe. UIDs  are  portable
                           only across same-size machine architectures.

                 -s        Directs  the  compiler  to  set  the  locale before
                           compiling any files.   The  locale  is  set  in  an
                           implementation-dependent  manner.   On ANSI C-based
                           systems, the  locale  is  usually  set  by  calling
                           setlocale(LC_ALL,  "").   If  this  option  is  not
                           specified, the compiler does not set the locale.

                 -v file   Directs the compiler to generate  a  listing.   The
                           file  specifies  the  filename for the listing.  If
                           the  -v  option  is  not  present,  no  listing  is
                           generated  by  the  compiler.   The  default  is no

                 -w        Specifies that the compiler  suppress  all  warning
                           and  informational messages.  If this option is not
                           present, all messages are generated, regardless  of
                           the severity.

                 -wmd file Specifies a binary widget meta-language description
                           file to  be  used  in  place  of  the  default  WML


       X(1) and Uil(3).
