NAME
       uil — The user interface language compiler

SYNOPSIS
       uil [options ]  [file]

DESCRIPTION
       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:

                 -Ipathname
                           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
                           listing.

                 -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
                           description.
