PROC is the server process.  STRING consists of a sequence of
commands prefixed by a dash.  Some commands have arguments; these
are &-quoted and need to be decoded by `server-unquote-arg'.  The
filter parses and executes these commands.

To illustrate the protocol, here is an example command that
emacsclient sends to create a new X frame (note that the whole
sequence is sent on a single line):

	-version 21.3.50 xterm
	-env HOME /home/lorentey
	-env DISPLAY :0.0
	... lots of other -env commands
	-display :0.0
	-window-system

The server normally sends back the single command `-good-version'
as a response.

The following commands are accepted by the server:

565 566 567 568
`-auth AUTH-STRING'
  Authenticate the client using the secret authentication string
  AUTH_STRING.

569 570 571 572 573
`-version CLIENT-VERSION'
  Check version numbers between server and client, and signal an
  error if there is a mismatch.  The server replies with
  `-good-version' to confirm the match.

574
`-env NAME=VALUE'
575 576
  An environment variable on the client side.

577 578 579
`-dir DIRNAME'
  The current working directory of the client process.

580 581 582
`-current-frame'
  Forbid the creation of new frames.

583 584 585 586 587 588 589 590 591 592 593 594 595 596 597 598 599 600 601 602 603 604 605 606 607 608 609 610 611
`-nowait'
  Request that the next frame created should not be
  associated with this client.

`-display DISPLAY'
  Set the display name to open X frames on.

`-position LINE[:COLUMN]'
  Go to the given line and column number
  in the next file opened.

`-file FILENAME'
  Load the given file in the current frame.

`-eval EXPR'
  Evaluate EXPR as a Lisp expression and return the
  result in -print commands.

`-window-system'
  Open a new X frame.

`-tty DEVICENAME TYPE'
  Open a new tty frame at the client.

`-suspend'
  Suspend this tty frame.  The client sends this string in
  response to SIGTSTP and SIGTTOU.  The server must cease all I/O
  on this tty until it gets a -resume command.

612 613 614 615 616
`-resume'
  Resume this tty frame. The client sends this string when it
  gets the SIGCONT signal and it is the foreground process on its
  controlling tty.

617 618 619 620 621 622 623 624 625 626 627 628 629 630 631 632 633 634 635 636 637 638 639 640 641 642 643 644 645 646
`-ignore COMMENT'
  Do nothing, but put the comment in the server
  log.  Useful for debugging.


The following commands are accepted by the client:

`-good-version'
  Signals a version match between the client and the server.

`-emacs-pid PID'
  Describes the process id of the Emacs process;
  used to forward window change signals to it.

`-window-system-unsupported'
  Signals that the server does not
  support creating X frames; the client must try again with a tty
  frame.

`-print STRING'
  Print STRING on stdout.  Used to send values
  returned by -eval.

`-error DESCRIPTION'
  Signal an error (but continue processing).

`-suspend'
  Suspend this terminal, i.e., stop the client process.  Sent
  when the user presses C-z."
