Re: Display option in multiscreen

cde while saving the command also saves the screen no. where the 
command was started. 
for eg. 
dtsmcmd -screen 0 -cmd "/usr/dt/bin/sdtperfmeter -f -H -t cpu -t disk -
s 1 -name fpperfmeter" 

Once this is saved, i guess while starting the application it gets the 
display, appends the screen number to it and starts the application on 
that display screen. But the screen parsing etc. finally will need to 
be done in the gtk code as that is where the display control rests.
