DESCRIPTION	offers	editing	capabilities  while  the  user	is en-
       tering  the line.  By default, the line editing commands	are similar to

       The  key	binding	can be overridden or defined in	fvwm module configura-

	      *FvwmConsole: Key	\ck prev_line

       Non-space character sequence need not be	quoted.	 In order to undefine,
       omit the	last argument.

	      *FvwmConsole: Key	\ck

       Note  that non-meta character is	case sensitive.	 \c means control key,
       \e means	escape,	and \m is alt key.
       It also accepts Subst configuration. Users often	input long  fvwm  com-
       mand  repeatedly.  Subst	will replace particular	input sequence to user
       defined string. Example:

	      *FvwmConsole: Subst '^bigx' 'Exec	xterm -g 120x60+0+0 -fn	 10x20
	      -fg black	-bg lemonchiffon'

       Typing 'bigx<return>' in	FvwmConsole will launch	xterm. '^' denotes the
       beginning of line in regular expression.	 'pl' in  the  middle  of  the
       command	will  not be replaced. Although	the format looks different, it
       takes Perl regular expression.  It just uses single or double quote  as
       the  delimiter.	 Single	 or double quotes have no difference, although
       they have to match, and cannot include itself in	the string.

	      *FvwmConsole: Subst '^g\s*(\d+)' 'Desk 0 0\nGotoPage  0  $1\nFo-

       Entering	'g4' or	'g  4' will jump to desk 0 page	0 4 and	focus.

INVOCATION should be invoked by FvwmConsole.

       FvwmConsole(1x),	perlre(1)
