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.
Specifies the file to be compiled through the UIL compiler.
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.
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.
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.
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
If this option is not specified, the compiler does not set the locale.
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 listing.
Specifies that the compiler suppress all warning and informational
messages. If this option is not present, all messages are generated,
regardless of the severity.
Specifies a binary widget meta-language description file to
be used in place of the default WML description.
