KDE 3.2 - A User's Perspective

Simple KDE Shell Scripting

Make simple dialog windows appear with 'kdialog'.

You can ask questions, prompt for text, etc. ...

...and then use the results!

Use "kdcop" to find out what functions you can access from outside a program. (e.g., tell JuK to play the next song).

Here, we call the "pressure()" function in KWeather, and provide it our weather station (Sacramento International Airport: KSMF)

Use "dcop" to do the same thing on the command-line.

Combine "dcop" with "kdialog" in a shell script to glue it together!
