sde



NAME

      sde - SDE Control Panel


SYNOPSIS

      sde [-newserver] [-help]


DESCRIPTION

      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.

    OPTIONS
      -newserver
           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).

      -help
           Write a help text for the sde command, and exit.
