xconsole - monitor system console messages with X
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
8n xconsole [-toolkitoption ...] [-file file-name] [-notify] [-stripNonprint] [-daemon] [-verbose] [-exitOnFail]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
The xconsoleprogram displays messages which are usually sent to /dev/console.
4. OPTIONS ▲
Xconsoleaccepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with the additional options listed below:
To monitor some other device, use this option to specify the device name. This does not work on regular files as they are always ready to be read from.
When new data are received from the console and the notify option is set, the icon name of the application has " *" appended, so that it is evident even when the application is iconified. -notify is the default.
This option causes xconsoleto place itself in the background, using fork/exit.
When set, this option directs xconsoleto display an informative message in the first line of the text buffer.
When set, this option directs xconsoleto exit when it is unable to redirect the console output.
When set, xconsoleonly preserves countlines of message history instead of growing the text buffer without bound (a countof zero - the default - is treated as placing no limit on the history).
5. X DEFAULTS ▲
This program uses the Athena Textwidget, look in the Athena Widget Setdocumentation for controlling it.
Xconsoleotherwise accepts resources of the same names as the command-line options (without the leading dash). "file" is a string type, "saveLines" an integer, and the remaining options are booleans.
6. WIDGETS ▲
In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy of the widgets which compose xconsole. In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure. The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.
