make_services - generate GNUstep services info SYNOPSIS
make_services [--test filename ] [--verbose|--quiet] DESCRIPTION
make_services builds a validated cache of service information for use by programs that want to access the GNUstep services facility. Addi- tionally, it builds a list of applications and service bundles found in the standard directories. This cache is usually stored in the file named .GNUstepServices in the user's GNUstep directory. Most commonly, make_services is called from within the or GNUstep.csh script to update the service information everytime the GNUstep environmet is set up, i.e. in a login script. But of course it is possible to run make_services from the command line whenever you wish, for example after having installed a new application or service. The Services menu in an application's mainmenu is usually updated automatically. However, it may be neccessary to close an open or torn off menu for the changes to appear. Also, the workspace manager may have to be closed and restarted for file association changes to take effect. OPTIONS
--test filename check that property list filename contains a valid service information. --quiet suppress warnings (not recommended but useful in login scripts). --verbose give verbose output. --help show small help screen. EXAMPLES
Simply rebuild the cache of service information: make_services Check whether the file ServiceInfo.plist contains a valid service description: make_services --test ServiceInfo.plist NOTES
Giving both --quiet and --verbose on the command line will result in verbose output, ignoring the --quiet argument. SEE ALSO

defaults - read or modify GNUstep user defaults SYNOPSIS
defaults [ action ] DESCRIPTION
The 'defaults' command lets you to read and modify a user's defaults. This program replaces the old NeXTstep style dread, dwrite, and dremove programs. If you have access to another user's defaults database, you may include '-u username' before any other options to use that user's database rather than your own. defaults read [ domain [ key] ] read the named default from the specified domain. If no 'key' is given - read all defaults from the domain. If no 'domain' is given - read all defaults from all domains. A domain is either an application name, or "NSGlobalDomain", for system level defauts. (Running programs can access two other domains, "NSArgumentDomain", for command line arguments, "NSRegistrationDomain", a second- chance domain in which "defaults for defaults" can be registered, and possibly domains for specific locales.) defaults readkey key read the named default from all domains. defaults write domain key value write 'value' as default 'key' in the specified domain. 'value' must be a property list in single quotes. defaults write domain dictionary write 'dictionary' as a replacement for the specified domain. 'dictionary' must be a property list in single quotes. defaults write reads standard input for defaults in the format produced by 'defaults read' and writes them to the database. defaults delete [ domain [ key] ] remove the specified default(s) from the domain. If no 'key' is given - delete the entire domain. defaults delete read standard input for a series of lines containing pairs of domains and keys for defaults to be deleted. defaults domains lists the domains in the database (one per line) defaults find word searches domain names, default names, and default value strings for those equal to the specified word and lists them on standard output. defaults plist output some information about property lists defaults help list options for the defaults command.

Hopefully self-explanatory. HISTORY
The 'defaults' command appeared in OpenStep and combined the capabilities of the earlier NeXTstep commands 'dread', 'dwrite', and 'dremove'. The GNUstep version was written in 1998. This manual page first appeared in gnustep-base 1.9.2 (March 2004). AUTHORS
