 XWhom(1)                                                           XWhom(1)
                                   25/2/96



 NAME
      XWhom - lists the users on the system

 SYNOPSIS
      XWhom [-w] [-u] [-c] [-s]


 DESCRIPTION
      XWhom is a simple X-hack I did one day because I didn't feel like
      doing real work.  XWhom lists the users on the system in an Athena
      List Widget.  If you have a .whom file in your home directory, the
      names in your .whom file will replace the corresponding login names.
      Click on the desired user to get information about them and their
      processes.  XWhom updates the list every 10 seconds.  Press 'Q' to
      quit.

 USAGE - DOT FILES
      The .whom file contains aliases for login names.  The aliases may have
      spaces, but will be truncated to 8 characters.  A sample .whom file:

         login:   alias:

         root     The Man
         uucp     mailman
         jpaparel Joe


 USAGE - THE COMMAND LINE
         The -w option just displays users in your .whom file.
         The -u option lets you adjust the user list refresh interval.
         The -c option lets you set the default number of columns.
         The -s option disables scrollbars.


 USAGE - X DEFAULTS
      Merge in the default resources by typing:  xrdb -merge Xwhom.ad You
      can edit this file to put in your own default resources then add it to
      your .Xdefaults file.
