NAME
       gnome-std-options  - standard options available for most GNOME applica-
       tions

DESCRIPTION
       GNOME standard options which are available for most GNOME based  appli-
       cations.  Some of these options are only available if the program makes
       use of various GNOME interfaces such as GTK+, libgnome, or  GNOME  ses-
       sion.   Use  the  --help option to see which arguments are supported by
       any given program.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -?, --help
           Display detailed usage message.

       --help-all
           Display all help options.

       --usage
           Display a brief usage message.

       The following GTK+ options are supported:

       --help-gtk
           Display GTK+ help options.

       --class=class
           Set the class of a GTK+ program, for use by the window manager.

       --name=name
           Set the name of a GTK+ program, for use by the window manager.

       --display=display
           Specify an X Display to use, where display is in the following for-
           mat:

           hostname:displaynumber.screennumber

       --g-fatal-warnings
           Make all GTK+ warnings fatal. This will cause the application to be
           killed when a warning is issued, rather than reporting this warning
           to
            sdterr.

       --gdk-debug=flags
           Specify  a  list  of  GDK  debug flags to set, in addition to those
           specified in the GDK_DEBUG environment  variable.  This  option  is
           only  available  if  GTK+  has  been  configured with the --enable-
           debug=yes option.  Valid flags values are as follows:

             o  all

             o  dnd

             o  events

             o  misc

             o  xim


           For more information, please refer to the GTK+ source code.

       --gdk-no-debug=flags
           Specify a list of GDK debug flags to unset.  This  option  is  only
           available  if  GTK+ has been configured with the --enable-debug=yes
           option.  Valid flags values are the same  as  for  the  --gdk-debug
           option. For more information, please refer to the GTK+ source code.

       --gtk-debug=flags
           Specify  a list of GTK+ options to set, in addition to those speci-
           fied in the GTK_DEBUG environment variable.  This  option  is  only
           available  if  GTK+ has been configured with the --enable-debug=yes
           option.  Valid flags values are as follows:

             o  all

             o  geometry

             o  icontheme

             o  keybindings

             o  misc

             o  modules

             o  multihead

             o  plugsocket

             o  printing

             o  text

             o  tree

             o  updates


           For more information, please refer to the GTK+ source code.

       --gtk-no-debug=flags
           Specify a list of GTK+ options to unset. This option is only avail-
           able  if  GTK+  has been configured with --enable-debug=yes option.
           Valid flags values are the same as for the --gtk-debug option.  For
           more information, please refer to the GTK+ source code.

       --gtk-module=module
           Specify  a  list  of  GTK+  modules  to  load, in addition to those
           specifed in the GTK_MODULES environment variable.

       --screen=screen
           Specify an X Screen to use. This is only useful if  more  than  one
           physical  monitor is available. The default screen is 0.  screen is
           an integer value in the range 0 to {NumberOfScreens - 1}.

       --sync
           Specify that requests to the X Server should be sent synchronously.
           By  default,  such requests are sent asynchronously. This option is
           generally used when debugging an application,  and  should  not  be
           used in normal execution.

       --help-gnome
           Display GNOME options.

       0

       example% ghex2 --display=Labrynth:0.0

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       See environ(7) for descriptions of the following environment variables:

       DISPLAY                 X Display on which the application should  dis-
                               play.

       G_DEBUG                 This  variable  can  be  set to a list of debug
                               options.  Set to fatal_warnings  to  make  pro-
                               grams abort at the first call to g_warning() or
                               g_critical().  Set to fatal_criticals to  abort
                               at  the first call to g_critical().  Set to gc-
                               friendly to cause newly allocated  memory  that
                               isn't  directly  initialized, as well as memory
                               being freed to be reset to 0.  Set to resident-
                               modules  to cause all modules loaded by GModule
                               to be made resident.  Set  to  bind-now-modules
                               to  cause all modules loaded by GModule to bind
                               their symbols at load time, even  if  the  code
                               uses %G_MODULE_BIND_LAZY.

       GDK_DEBUG               If  GTK+ has been configured with the --enable-
                               debug=yes option, this variable can be set to a
                               list  of  debug  options that should be set for
                               GDK.  Refer to the --gdk-option option for more
                               information.

       GTK_DEBUG               If  GTK+ has been configured with the --enable-
                               debug=yes option, this variable can be set to a
                               list  of  debug  options that should be set for
                               GTK.  Refer to the --gtk-debug option  for  for
                               more information.

       GTK_MODULES             A list of GTK+ modules to load.

       GTK_PATH                A  list  of  directories to search when GTK+ is
                               looking for dynamically loaded objects such  as
                               the  modules  specified  by  GTK_MODULES, theme
                               engines,  input  method  modules,  file  system
                               backends, and print backends.
