Launches the Documentation Library Service library function.
docsearch [ -lang locale ]
The docsearch command launches the Documentation Library Service library application into a web browser window. This global library shows all document volumes/collections that are registered with the service on the documentation server. You can read documents by selecting their links or select the volumes you want to search and then type in the words you want to search for. The search service then returns a list of the documents that contain the query words. Each document is shown as a hyperlink that opens the document for reading. The client or server portion of the Documentation Search Service package must be installed to enable this command.
The docsearch command reads the environment variables DOCUMENT_SERVER_MACHINE_NAME and DOCUMENT_SERVER_PORT to determine the hostname of the machine where the documents are located and the port of the webserver on that machine.
|-lang locale||Uses the language specified in locale to create the library application. Use the standard locale names to specify locale. This specifies the language for the library application buttons and lables. The form will only offer for search those document (indexes) that are written in that language and the search will be conducted in the same language.|
To open the global library in German (locale=de_DE) and only show all German documents installed on the system, enter:
docsearch -lang de_DE
