NAME
       xconsole - monitor system console messages with X

SYNOPSIS
       xconsole  [-toolkitoption  ...]	[-file	file-name]  [-notify]  [-stripNonprint] [-daemon]
       [-verbose] [-exitOnFail]

DESCRIPTION
       The xconsole program displays messages which are usually sent to /dev/console.

OPTIONS
       Xconsole accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with  the  addi-
       tional options listed below:

       -file file-name
	       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.

       -notify -nonotify
	       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.

       -daemon This option causes xconsole to place itself in the background, using fork/exit.

       -verbose
	       When set, this option directs xconsole to display an informative  message  in  the
	       first line of the text buffer.

       -exitOnFail
	       When  set,  this option directs xconsole to exit when it is unable to redirect the
	       console output.

       -saveLines count
	       When set, xconsole only preserves count lines of message history instead of  grow-
	       ing  the  text buffer without bound (a count of zero - the default - is treated as
	       placing no limit on the history).

X DEFAULTS
       This program uses the Athena Text widget, look in the Athena Widget Set documentation  for
       controlling it.

       Xconsole  otherwise accepts resources of the same names as the command-line options (with-
       out the leading dash).  "file" is a string type, "saveLines" an integer, and the remaining
       options are booleans.

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.

       XConsole  xconsole
	    XConsole  text

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
	       to  get	the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in
	       the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

FILES
       /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XConsole
	      specifies required resources
