NAME
       WinCommand -  AfterStep	module	for  choosing and manipulating windows
       based on	patterns

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
DESCRIPTION
       WinCommand is a command line tool which allows you  to  select  windows
       based  on  their	 name and to then manipulate them in various ways. Ac-
       tions currently supported  are:	"center",  "center  jump",  "iconify",
       "jump", "kill", "move", "resize"	and "sendtodesk".

DEFAULTS
       The default pattern is "", meaning all windows will be selected.

       All other default-values	depend on the action you would like WinCommand
       to take.	If more	than one action	is specified, default-values  are  set
       depending on the	last action specified.

ACTIONS
       center

	      Place matching windows into the center of	the screen.

       center jump:

	      Places  first  window that matches into the center of the	screen
	      and jumps	to it.

       iconify:

	      Iconifies	matching windows.

       jump:

	      Jumps to the first window	which matches.

       kill:

	      Kills all	matching windows.

       move:

	      Moves all	matching windows to x/y. x and y are  specified	 using
	      the -x and -y flags.

       resize:

	      Resize all matching windows. The two parameters width and	height
	      are specified using the -width and -height flags.

       send_to_desk:

	      Send all matching	windows	to desk	specified with	the  -new_desk
	      flag.

OPTIONS
       -all

	      Operate  on  all	windows	which match the	given pattern. This is
	      set by default unless the	action is  either  "jump"  or  "center
	      jump".

       -alldesks

	      Windows  on all desks will be taken into account.	This is	set by
	      default if action	is either "jump" or "center jump".

       -desk

	      Windows on the whole desk	will be	taken into account.

       -x/-y

	      These are	required when issuing the move-command.

       -width/-height

	      These are	required whenever you want to resize windows.

	      Examples WinCommand -pattern term	iconify

	      This command will	iconify	all  terminals.	 Since	the  specified
	      pattern is a regular expression, something like this also	works:

	      WinCommand -pattern "(term)|(moz)" iconify

	      This will	iconify	all terminals and mozilla-browser windows.

	      WinCommand -pattern xmm jump

	      will  jump to your xmms. In this situation, it's far more	advis-
	      able to use GWCommand though.

	      It is probably not a good	idea to	delete windows	while  windows
	      are being	arranged.
