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):

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

The following commands are accepted by the server:

696 697
`-auth AUTH-STRING'
  Authenticate the client using the secret authentication string
698
  AUTH-STRING.
699

700
`-env NAME=VALUE'
701 702
  An environment variable on the client side.

703 704 705
`-dir DIRNAME'
  The current working directory of the client process.

706 707 708
`-current-frame'
  Forbid the creation of new frames.

709 710 711 712 713 714 715 716 717 718 719 720 721 722 723 724 725 726 727 728 729 730 731 732 733 734 735 736 737
`-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.

738
`-resume'
739
  Resume this tty frame.  The client sends this string when it
740 741 742
  gets the SIGCONT signal and it is the foreground process on its
  controlling tty.

743 744 745 746 747 748 749 750 751 752 753 754
`-ignore COMMENT'
  Do nothing, but put the comment in the server
  log.  Useful for debugging.


The following commands are accepted by the client:

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

`-window-system-unsupported'
755 756
  Signals that the server does not support creating X frames;
  the client must try again with a tty frame.
757 758 759 760 761 762 763 764 765

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

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

`-suspend'
766 767
  Suspend this terminal, i.e., stop the client process.
  Sent when the user presses C-z."
