Starts the UIM/X user-interface management system for the X Window System.
uimx [ -dir Path ] [ -file FileName ] [ -workspace Name ] [ -xrm Options ]
The uimx command starts the UIM/X user-interface management system for the X Window System. It supports Motif 1.2 and provides a complete programming environment for developing graphical user interfaces (GUIs). UIM/X supports object-oriented programming in both C and C++.
UIM/X saves and loads text files that use the Xt resource syntax to describe interfaces and projects. It can also load UIL files. It generates C, C++, and UIL code. It can also generate makefiles, message catalogs, and resource files for an application.
UIM/X includes a built-in C Interpreter and the following tools and editors:
UIM/X supports two operating modes: Design and Test. In Test mode, the built-in C Interpreter allows you to test the behavior of your application. In Design mode, the C Interpreter validates the code you enter into the various UIM/X editors.
UIM/X provides a convenience library of functions that simplify the task of programming with X and Motif.
