NAME
       gnome-std-options - standard options available for most GNOME applications

DESCRIPTION
       GNOME  standard	options  which	are available for most GNOME based applications.  Some of
       these options are only available if the program makes use of various GNOME interfaces such
       as GTK+, Bonobo Activation, libgnome, libgnomeui, or GNOME session.  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

       --g-fatal-warnings

       --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 config-

	   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 specified in the GTK_DEBUG
	   environment	variable.  This option is only available if GTK+ has been configured with

       --gtk-no-debug=flags

	   Specify a list of GTK+ options to unset. This option is only  available  if	GTK+  has
	   been  configured  with  --enable-debug=yes option.  Valid flags values are the same as

	   code.

       --gtk-module=module

       G_DEBUG		       This variable can be set to a  list  of	debug  options.   Set  to
			       fatal_warnings to make programs abort at the first call to g_warn-
			       ing() 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  mem-
			       ory  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_MOD-
			       ULE_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 informa-
			       tion.

			       theme  engines,	input  method  modules, file system backends, and
			       print backends.

       GXID_HOST	       Host to which the gxid daemon should connect.
