Name
       dxue - DECwindows user executive

Syntax
       dxue [ options ]

Description
       The dxue command provides a window that lets you access the ULTRIX pro‐
       gramming environment and DECwindows applications.  In addition, you can
       expand  the  selection  of commands by modifying existing or adding new
       dxue menus.

       When started, dxue creates a text file in  your	home  directory	 named
       .ue_profile.   When  you make modifications to the dxue interface, dxue
       records those changes in this file.

Options
       -bd color	   Specifies the color of the window's	border	(color
			   displays  only).  The default is specified by means
			   of the Session Manager's  Customize	Window	dialog
			   box.

       -bg color	   Specifies  the  color  of  the  window's background
			   (color displays only).  The default is specified by
			   means  of  the  Session  Manager's Customize Window
			   dialog box.

       -d dispname	   Specifies the display screen on which dxue displays
			   its	window.	  If  the display option is not speci‐
			   fied, dxue uses the	display	 screen	 specified  by
			   your	 DISPLAY  environment  variable.   The display
			   option has the format hostname:number.   Using  two
			   colons  (::) instead of one (:) indicates that DEC‐
			   net is to be used for transport.   The  default  is
			   :0.	For more information, see

       -display dispname   This option is the same as the -d option.

       -fg color	   Specifies  the  color  of  the  window's foreground
			   (color displays only).  The default is specified by
			   means  of  the  Session  Manager's Customize Window
			   dialog box.

       -fn font		   Specifies the font used when displaying text.

       -geometry	   Specifies the width, length, and  location  of  the
			   dxue	 window.  If the geometry option is not speci‐
			   fied,  dxue	uses  default  values.	 The  geometry
			   option  has	the format [widthxlength][{+-}x{+-}y].
			   For more information about  the  screen  coordinate
			   system, see

Main Window
       In  the dxue window, the Full Directory Path field displays the name of
       your current default directory.	The current directory appears in ital‐
       ics in the Directories list box.	 You can change directories by select‐
       ing a directory name from the Directories list box.  The	 Filter	 field
       contains	 the  file  name pattern to which the files shown in the Files
       subwindow conform.  An empty Filter field indicates that all  files  in
       the  current  directory	are  displayed.	 The current directory and its
       displayed files are called the current view.

       There are three methods for performing file operations.	You can select
       one  or more files and then choose one of the items from the Files menu
       to apply to those files.	 You can also position the pointer on  a  file
       name  and press MB2 (the middle mouse button, unless you have redefined
       it); you then choose  a	file  operation	 from  the  pop-up  menu  that
       appears.	 The dxue application also defines default operations for var‐
       ious types of files; you perform the default operation  by  positioning
       the pointer on a file name and double-clicking MB1 (the left mouse but‐
       ton, unless you have redefined it). To view or change the default  file
       operations,  choose the Double Click Actions... menu item from the Cus‐
       tomize menu.

			   clicking  on	 its  toggle button,  the Sample field
			   displays that property for one of your  files.  You
			   can	select the field by which the files are sorted
			   and specify the sort order: ascending  or  descend‐
			   ing.

			   the menu selected in Menu list box.	You can create
			   additional menus by entering the name of  the  menu
			   in  the  New	 Menu  Name  field and clicking on the
			   Insert button.  You can remove menus	 by  selecting
			   the	name  from the list and clicking on the Remove

			   also define new file types.

Restrictions
       Help is not implemented.

X Defaults
       The dxue application uses the values in the .Xdefaults  file  when  you
       logged  in and uses the appropriate resource specification to customize
       the appearance or characteristics of its displayed  dxue	 window.   The
       format for a resource specification in the .Xdefaults file is:

       [name*]resource:	   value

       name	 Specifies  the	 application  name  or	the  name  string that
		 restricts the resource assignment to that application or to a
		 component  of an application.	If this argument is not speci‐
		 fied, the resource assignment is globally available to all  X
		 applications.

       resource	 Specifies the resource.

       value	 Specifies the value that is to be assigned to the resource.

       For more information, see

       Because	each toolkit-based application can consist of a combination of
       widgets (for example, push buttons and a scroll bar), you can form  the
       name  string by adding widget class and name identifiers to the string.
       For further information about adding class and name identifiers, see
