       fvwm-menu-xlock - builds	xlock menu definition for fvwm

       fvwm-menu-xlock [ --help|-h|-? ]	[ --version|-V ] [ --name|-n name ] [
       --title|-t title	] [ --item format ] [ --icon-title icon	] [
       --icon-item icon	] [ --special-first|-s ] [ -- xlock params ]

       A simple	perl script which parses xlock's output	to build an fvwm menu
       definition of all xlock's modes.

	   show	the help and exit

	   show	the version and	exit

       --name name
	   define menu name in the following argument. Default is "XLockMenu"

       --title title
	   define menu title in	the following argument.	Default	is "XLock

       --item format
	   define menu item format in the following argument, default is
	   '%n\t(%d)'. TAB can be specified as '\t', but in .fvwm2rc you
	   should specify a double backslash or	a real TAB.

	   Format specifiers:

	     %n	- mode name
	     %d	- mode description
	     %D	- mode description without "Shows " prefix if any

	   These specifiers can	receive	an optional integer size, positive for
	   right adjusted string or negative for left adjusted,	example: %8x;
	   and optional	*num or	*-num, which means to leave only the first or
	   last	(if minus) num of chars, the num must be greater than 3, since
	   the striped part is replaced	with "...", example: %*30x. Both can
	   be combined:	%-10*-20x, this	instructs to get only the 20 last
	   characters, but if the length is less then 10 - to fill with	up to
	   10 spaces on	the right.

       --icon-title icon
       --icon-item icon
	   define menu icon for	title and regular item accordingly. Default is
	   no menu icons (equivalent to	an empty icon argument).

	   define icon names suitable for use with wm-icons package. Currently
	   this	is equivalent to: --icon-title '' --icon-item menu/lock.xpm.

	   instructs to	include	special	modes (usually black, bomb and random)

       Option parameters can be	specified either using '=' or in the next
       argument. Short options are ok if not ambiguous:	-h, -t;	but be careful
       with short options, what	is now unambiguous, can	became ambiguous in
       the next	versions.

       Additional arguments (after --) will be passed to xlock.

       Please see the xlock(1) man page	for the	xlock options.

       Add these lines to your fvwm configuration file:

	 PipeRead 'fvwm-menu-xlock --name MenuSSaver --title "Screensaver" \
	   --icon-item mini-bball.xpm --special-first -- -nice 19 -nolock'
	 PipeRead 'fvwm-menu-xlock --name MenuSLock --title "Lock Screen" \
	   --icon-item mini-rball.xpm --special-first -- -nice 19'
	 AddToMenu "Utilities" "Screensaver%mini-monitor.xpm%" Popup MenuSSaver
	 AddToMenu "Utilities" "Screenlock%mini-lock.xpm%"     Popup MenuSLock

       The script is distributed by the	same terms as fvwm itself. See GNU
       General Public License for details.

       Depends on the output of	xlock. Will produce an empty menu if the
       structure of the	output is changed.
