NAME
       awesome - awesome window	manager

SYNOPSIS
       awesome [-v | --version]	[-h | --help] [-c | --config FILE] [-k |
       --check]	[--search DIRECTORY] [-a | --no-argb] [-r | *--replace]

DESCRIPTION
       awesome is a window manager for X. It manages windows in	different
       layouts,	like floating or tiled.	Any layout can be applied dynamically,
       optimizing the environment for the application in use and the task
       currently being performed.

       In a tiled layout, windows are managed in a master and stacking area.
       The master area contains	the windows which currently need the most
       attention, whereas the stacking area contains all other windows.	In a
       floating	layout windows can be resized and moved	freely.	Dialog windows
       are always managed as floating, regardless of the layout	currently
       applied.	The spiral and dwindle layouts are special cases of the	tiled
       layout where the	stacking area is arranged in a spiral for the former
       or as a rectangular fractal for the later.

       Windows are grouped by tags in awesome. Each window can be tagged with
       one or more tags. Selecting certain tags	displays all windows with
       these tags.

       awesome can contain small wiboxes which can display anything you	want:
       all available tags, the current layout, the title of the	visible
       windows,	text, etc.
