NAME
       awesome2-menu - awesome2	menu system

SYNOPSIS
       awesome2-menu [-c config] [-e command] <title>

DESCRIPTION
       awesome2-menu is	a tool which will pop up a menu	on your	screen,
       grabbing	keyboard and allowing you to search through an initial
       completion list,	or using your files as completion.

USAGE
       By default, awesome2-menu reads completion from standard	input. If
       nothing is read,	the completion list is built from the current working
       directory files.

       To build	a menu with all	the executable files of	/usr/bin:

	   ls /usr/bin | awesome2-menu -e 'exec	' 'Execute'

       To build	the same menu and run the programs in a	terminal window:

	   ls /usr/bin | awesome2-menu -e 'xterm -e exec ' 'Execute in terminal'

       To build	an ssh connection prompt:

	   cut -d' ' -f1 ~/.ssh/known_hosts | cut -d, -f1 | awesome2-menu -e 'xterm -e ssh ' 'ssh to:'

       If you do not specify the -e option, the	result will be sent to
       standard	output.	You can	do things like that:

	   gzip	"$(awesome2-menu '"File	to gzip')"

OPTIONS
       -c config
	   Use an alternate configuration file instead of $HOME/.awesome2rc.

       -e command
	   Command to execute. The result is appended to the end of this
	   command (like xargs).

       <title>
	   Print this title. This is also used to identify the menu section in
	   the awesome2rc file.
