FvwmClean(1.20)						       FvwmClean(1.20)

       FvwmClean - the FVWM desktop clutter reduction module

       FvwmClean is spawned by fvwm, so	no command line	invocation will	work.

       The FvwmClean module performs actions on	windows	which have not had the
       keyboard	focus for a specific length of time. This is intended to  help
       alleviate the problem of	leaving	programs running in unused portions of
       your desktop.

       FvwmClean reads the same	.fvwmrc	file as	fvwm reads when	it starts  up,
       and looks for lines similar to "*FvwmNoClutter 3600 Iconify".

       The  FvwmClean  program,	and the	concept	for interfacing	this module to
       the Window Manager, are all original work by Robert Nation

       Copyright 1994, Robert Nation. No guarantees or warranties or  anything
       are provided or implied in any way whatsoever. Use this program at your
       own risk. Permission to use this	program	for any	purpose	is  given,  as
       long as the copyright is	kept intact.

       During initialization, FvwmClean	will eventually	search a configuration
       file which describes the	time-outs and actions to take.	The configura-
       tion file is the	same file that fvwm used during	initialization.

       If  the	FvwmClean executable is	linked to another name,	ie ln -s Fvwm-
       Clean OtherClutter, then	another	 module	 called	 OtherClutter  can  be
       started,	with a completely different configuration than FvwmClean, sim-
       ply by changing the keyword  FvwmClean to OtherClutter. This way	multi-
       ple clutter-reduction programs can be used.

       FvwmClean  can  be  invoked by inserting	the line 'Module FvwmClean' in
       the .fvwmrc file. This can be placed on a line by itself, if  FvwmClean
       is  to  be  spawned  during fvwm's initialization, or can be bound to a
       menu or mouse button or keystroke to invoke it later. Fvwm will	search
       directory  specified  in	the ModulePath configuration option to attempt
       to locate FvwmClean.

       FvwmClean reads the same	.fvwmrc	file as	fvwm reads when	it starts  up,
       and looks for lines similar to "*FvwmClean 3600 Iconify". The format of
       these lines is "*FvwmClean [time] [command]", where command is any fvwm
       built-in	command, and time is the time in seconds between when a	window
       looses focus and	when the command is executed. At most 3	actions	can be
