IRIX Interactive Desktop Integration Guide
007-2006-120 (additional info
This manual explains how to integrate applications into the IRIX Interactive Desktop Environment. It is intended for programmers who are developing applications to run on Silicon Graphics workstations. This manual describes how to achieve the IRIX Interactive look and feel for your application-- using Schemes and the enhanced look, using new widgets provided by Silicon Graphics, setting window and session management properties, creating unique images for minimized windows, using the File Alteration Monitor, and tips for using fonts. The manual also shows you how to create Desktop icons for your application--drawing icons using IconSmith, programming icons using file typing rules, and installing icons in the Icon Catalog. You can internationalize your application by generalizing it so that it can easily be customized--or localized--to run in more than one language environment. Finally, information is provided for packaging your application for installation. This involves using the Software Packager tool so that users can install your product with Software Manager, the Silicon Graphics software installation and management tool. (Software Manager provides a graphical interface for you to install your product.)

Instructions for Downloading HTML Files
The HTML download consists of a single, complete "package"
containing all HTML and graphic files for this manual (007-2006-120). This
"package" is in a gzipped tar format. To open the package
if using IRIX or Linux:
% cd <some_directory>
% gunzip 007-2006-120.html.tgz
% tar xvf 007-2006-120.html.tar
- This will create a 007-2006-120 subdirectory off
the <some_directory> location specified above. You
may then view the book using any web_browser as follows:
% web_browser <some_directory>/007-2006-120/index.html
if using Windows (note: an extraction utility program such
as Winzip is needed):
In Internet Explorer, right-click on the link, select "Save
Target As...". Choose a folder (temporary or otherwise) to
download the file to and set the filename to be <product>.tar.gz
After the download completes, start the Windows (file) Explorer,
open the folder in which you downloaded the file to, and
double-click the filename
Winzip (or your installed extraction
utility program) should start. In
Winzip, a prompt should appear:
"...decompress to temp folder..." - click "Yes".
Winzip will display a list of files
that are included in the archive/package you downloaded. Click the
"Extract" icon. In the resultant window, select a
directory (folder) to extract the files into
click "Extract". A new folder will be created in the
chosen extract directory (folder). That new folder will be entitled
"007-2006-120". Quit winzip.
In the Windows (file) Explorer, open the newly-created folder
