SYNOPSIS

gRun [filename] [-v] [--version] [-h] [--help]

DESCRIPTION

gRun launches applications in X Windows without the need for an xterm session at all. gRun provides three methods of launching applications, entering the command directly into the text field, browsing the tree for the application and running an application specified on the command line. In all cases gRun exits completely after launching the application and the application is left running as a full child of the X process, as if it were launched from a WM menu. If gRun is launched from an xterm or shell, the shell will be freed for further use after gRun exits. No more wasting an xterm for the duration of the application.

gRun will attempt to complete a command automatically from the history as it is typed in, hopefully saving some time. Pressing the Tab key will try to find an executable file in the path that starts with the characters already entered into the entry box.

gRun also includes a facility for checking if the command is in a list of console mode apps, eg telnet. If it finds the command in the file, gRun launches a xterm with the command as the -e parameter.

gRun now has a facility for associating file extensions with a command, ala Windows. If an extension is found, the associated application is launched with the command entry as the parameter.
