/kojak/res (short for resource manager) is a kojak application that handles basic system functions. It is called by /kojak/go and always runs. Res appears to handle all application launching through the standard Audrey tools, receiving commands from buttond. Most kojak applications require the pid of res as an argument to start correctly.
You can simulate res and call kojak applications manually using this "startApp" script:
#!/bin/ksh # tag the res PID and CHID to this app and start it if [ $# -eq 1 ] then p=`cat /data/.rm-pid` c=`cat /data/.rm-chid` eval "$1 $p $c &" else echo "usage: startApp <application>" fi
