sde - SDE Control Panel
sde [-newserver] [-help]
The command sde starts SoftBench and SDE Control Panel, and the main
Motif interface to SDE.
SDE Control Panel is a top-level tool that manages all SoftBench
applications (for a specific user and message server) in the SDE
environment. It helps you to manage all your SoftBench tools,
including setting up correct environment variables for different
sessions that are running simultaneously.
The main window has a "Sessions:" list that shows the available
project or system sessions. Each system configuration, on either
project or system level, is regarded as a separate session.
Start a new message server, and start a new instance of SDE
Control Panel that is connected to this server. This is useful
after you have changed process ownership, e.g. with 'su' or
'newgrp'. The new message server will have the same process
ownership as the process where you issue the "sde -newserver"
command. SoftBench tools started later on will inherit process
ownership from the SDE Control Panel (and connected message
server) that started them. (The option -newserver can be
abbreviated to -n).
Write a help text for the sde command, and exit.
