xpce-client - Contact an XPCE server socket
xpce-client is a small program to contact an xpce(1)
server socket and
feed the xpce process commands. A generic server that provides the possibility
to execute Prolog goals
is available in the library(pce_server).
This server may be started from xpce using the command
after which this server may be contacted using:
% xpce-client socket
(pce) send(new(P, picture), open).
P = @717363
- Block until the xpce server closes the connection. Otherwise
xpce-client exists as soon as it has send all requests to the
server without waiting for response.
- -c command
- Send command as a command to the server. Without this option,
xpce-client will copy standard input to the server socket and copy any
output from the socket to standard output.
xpce-client(1) is not copyrighted. You may use, copy and modify its sources
and/or binaries as you like.
