Initialization and Session Management

gnome-ui-init — Parameters (and deprecated functions) for initializing libgnomeui applications.
GnomeClient — Interactions with the session manager.

This section includes functions and parameters used to initialise GNOME applications which use libgnomeui and to handle interactions with whatever session manager is running when the application starts up.

A typical application will call gnome_program_init (from libgnome/libgnome.h) with parameters from the gnome-ui-init section and will then possibly have further interactions (beyond the initial default setup performed by gnome_program_init) with the session manager.
