DESCRIPTION

       The appman program is used to configure the running of Appweb as a system
       service (daemon).  Appman provides a generic way to install/uninstall,
       enable/disable, start/stop, and run the Appweb service, regardless of the
       operating system. When used to run Appweb, it starts Appweb and then
       watches over Appweb, to restart it should Appweb fail. Appman also
       provides general management commands to enable, disable, start, and stop
       appweb.


COMMANDS

       disable
              Disable Appweb from automatically starting when the system is
              booted.

       enable Enable Appweb to start automatically on system boot.

       install
              Install Appweb as a service.

       run    Run Appweb and monitor its execution. Appman will automatically
              restart Appweb should it fail. Appman will block unless it is
              invoked with --daemon.

       start  Start Appweb manually.

       stop   Stop Appweb.

       uninstall
              Uninstall Appweb as a service.


OPTIONS

              Windows specific option to allow the manager process to interact
              with the users desktop.

       --daemon
              Run the manager as a daemon process. This causes the manager to
              detach from the current shell and run in the background.

       --heartBeat interval
              Windows specific option to set the frequency in seconds for the
              manager to check on service.  This period should be short enough
              that the service will be quickly restarted should it fail, but not
