       gtk-query-immodules-2.0	-  create  a  cache file used by GTK+ to efficiently locate input
       method modules

       gtk-query-immodules-2.0 [immodule] [immodule...]

       gtk-query-immodules-2.0 searches for input method (IM) modules for  GTK+  and  and  writes
       information  about them to stdout.  If the output is redirected to /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immod-
       ules, then this will cause the GTK+ library to use these modules by default.  This program
       is typically used by developers who are packaging GTK+ software which adds additional mod-

       IM modules can be selected by right-clicking on input fields when running  GTK+	programs.
       An  input  method  is  a software component that converts key presses into text input that
       cannot be typed directly. Input methods are normally used to input text for languages that
       have  more characters than can fit on a standard keyboard. Input methods are commonly used
       for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean text but are also used for other languages such as  Thai
       and Hindi.

       If  any	modules  are specified on the command line, gtk-query-immodules-2.0 only looks at
       those particular files. If no modules are specified on the command line,  gtk-query-immod-
       ules-2.0  scans	the user's GTK_PATH environment variable and looks at all IM modules that
       are specified there.

       When run, gtk-query-immodules-2.0 creates context information for each module. Each module
       has  one or more contexts. If no IM modules are specified on the command line, the scanned
       paths are included as a comment in the output.


       The following operands are supported:

       immodule        Specify the pathname to an IM module. This can be a full pathname, or rel-
		       ative to the current working directory.

       Example 1: Installing a new Input Method module myimmodule.so

       example% gtk_version=`pkg-config --variable=gtk_binary_version gtk-2.0`

       example% cp myimmodule.so /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/$gtk_version/immodules

       example% gtk-query-immodules-2.0 > /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules

       See  environ(5)	for  descriptions  of the following environment variables that affect the
       execution of gtk-query-immodules-2.0:

       GTK_PATH 	       Specifies directories to prepend to the input method module path.

       GTK_IM_MODULE	       Specifies what IM modules to use, in preference to the  IM  module
			       determined from the locale

       GTK_IM_MODULE_FILE      Specifies  the  file that lists the IM modules to load. This envi-
			       ronment variable overrides the im_module_file specified in the  RC
			       files,  which  in  turn	overrides the default value in the system
			       gtk.immodules file.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Application exited successfully

       >0	Application exited with failure

       The following files are used by this application:


	   The command-line executable for the application.


	   Default location of IM modules.


	   The GTK+ input method modules file.


	   Location of developer documentation
