NAME
       aewm - a	minimalist window manager for X11

SYNOPSIS
       aewm [options...]

DESCRIPTION
       aewm  is	an X11 window manager with very	few features. It draws a small
       titlebar	above top-level	windows, allows	you to	manipulate  them  with
       the  mouse,  and	starts other programs when the root window is clicked.
       That's also about all it	does, so don't expect anything nifty.

       The titlebar contains a small box in the	upper right  corner.  Clicking
       the  1st,  2nd,	or  3rd	 buttons on the	main area of the titlebar will
       raise, move, or lower the window, respectively.	Clicking  on  the  box
       will respectively hide, resize, or close	the window.

       By  default,  clicking  on  the	root window with button	1 will run ae-
       menu(1x), button	2 will run aemenu --switch, and	button 3 will start  a
       new  xterm(1x).	 aemenu	(or another equivalent program)	is required to
       unhide hidden windows; aewm does	not do this itself.
