- executable for the Framed Access Command Environment Interface
face [-i init_file] [-c command_file] [-a alias_file] [filename]...
The Framed Access Command Environment Interface (FACE) presents your files and file folders on the screen through a system of menus and forms if you are properly set up as a FACE user.
filename must follow the naming convention Menu.xxx for a menu, Form.xxx for a form, and Text.xxx for a text file, where xxx is any string that conforms to the UNIX system file naming conventions. The Form and Menu Language Interpreter (FMLI) descriptor lifetime will be ignored for all frames opened by argument to face. These frames have a lifetime of immortal by default. If filename is not specified on the command line, the FACE Menu will be opened along with those objects specified by the LOGINWIN environment variables. These variables are found in the user's .environ file.
The following options are supported:
The following operand is supported:
The full pathname of the file describing the object to be opened initially.
The face command will return a non-zero exit value if the user is not properly set up as a FACE user.
