Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the screenName function to control where applications that Revolution starts up should appear.

Value:

The screenName function returns a string.

Comments:

On Unix systems, the screenName function returns the string provided by the XDisplayName function call. When starting a process with the open process command or the shell function, if you want the process to appear on the same screen as Revolution, use the value returned by the screenName as the argument to the -d option.

This function does not return a useful value on Mac OS and Windows systems.
