NAME
       aemenu,	aepanel,  aesession,  set-gnome-pda  -	programs  for use with
       aewm(1x)

SYNOPSIS
       aemenu [--config|-rc _file_] [-s|--switch]
       aepanel [--config|-rc _file_]
       aesession
       set-gnome-pda [--left|-l	n] [--right|-r n] [--top|-t n] [--bottom|-b n]
       [--verbose|-v]

DESCRIPTION
       The programs listed above provide several window	and session management
       features	to complement aewm(1x).	 aemenu	and  aepanel  launch  programs
       and  raise  existing windows (or	unhide iconified ones).	 aemenu	uses a
       popup menu to accomplish	this (the --switch option changes the function
       of  this	 menu),	 while	aepanel	 stays	on  the	 screen	inbetween uses
       (launching and switching	functionality are both always available).

       Each program comes in both a GTK+ and a Xaw version; aemenu is actually
       a symlink to either aemenu-gtk or aemenu-xaw (likewise for aepanel).

       The  list  of  programs	to  be	run  by	 both  clients	is  read  from
       $HOME/.aewm/clientsrc.  There are two kinds of directives that  may  be
       used in this file:

	      cmd "Description"	"command"

       defines a command, which	whill be interpreted by	sh(1).

	      menu "Title"
	      (...)
	      end

       defines	a  submenu.  The  number of submenus that can be nested	within
       each other is limited only by stack space. Double  quotes  may  be  in-
       cluded  within  quoted strings by escaping them with a blackslash (\"),
       and quotes may be omitted around	single-word descriptions or  commands.
       Blank lines and lines starting with '#' are ignored.

       aesession  is a do-nothing program; it will simply reap any children it
       inherits	and then sleep.	By ending  your	 $HOME/.xsession  script  with
       "exec  aesession",  you	can  exit and restart aewm(1x) without killing
       your X session. The author does not  really  expect  anyone  except  WM
       hackers to find this useful.

       set-gnome-pda alters the	GNOME_PANEL_DESKTOP_AREA hint on the root win-
       dow. This is useful if you want to prevent aewm from mapping windows on
       top  of	some  client  that is attatched	to one edge of the screen, but
       does not	set this hint itself. Values not specified will	be left	alone.
       --verbose will dump the contents	of the hint (in	human-readable format)
       to stdout, after	any other actions specified on the  command  line  are
       processed.
